With simple entry off Te Rapa Road, Waterworld is a multi-pool facility and the biggest swim centre in the Waikato area. Established in October 1976, and initially called “Te Rapa Pools”, Waterworld is an extensive area for some time out, enclosed by grassy regions where you and your mates or family can have a picnic and drinks when you’re not splashing in our pools or trying out the exhilarating hydroslides. Our centre is made up of 6 pools: 50-metre pool (usually set up as 2 x 25-metre pools unless a private reservation needs full 50-metre length) – 8 lanes, ideal for length swimmers, competitive swimmers and for water sports.
25-metre pool – ideal for younger kids or parents/caregivers wanting to enjoy the water with tiny tots, it’s also the main pool used for our Learn to Swim sessions.
Dive pool – notably deeper than our other pools, this pool is ideal for some aquatic sports and either competitive or leisurely diving from our variety of platforms.
Toddlers pool – a little low-depth pool perfect for babies and little kids.
Lido pool – our massive outdoor pool, open mostly during the summertime, and a fantastic spot for families to escape the heat and chill out during the hot months.
Hydrotherapy Pool – a pool with higher water temperatures than our others. Its purpose is to make exercise and recovery easier for those with health issues or rehabilitating from injuries. We also provide a variety of other appealing activities and services.
Educare – a newly revamped day-care centre supervised by qualified childcare experts.
Learn to Swim – swimming and water safety tuition for all ages.
