"A safe and affordable aquatic facility for everyone..."

Kids going down one of the hydro slides at the Aquatic Centre.The Napier Aquatic Centre, Hawkes Bay's most comprehensive year-round aquatic facility. Situated in the centre of Napier, in the middle of Onekawa Park, the Napier Aquatic Centre is a safe and affordable aquatic facility for everyone. It is a POOLSAFE© and SMOKEFREE complex that is community based, delivering many recreational programmes and opportunities for Napier and the wider Hawkes Bay community. There are heated pools with disability-friendly access. Our focus is on learning to swim, water safety/water confidence, and promoting an active and healthy lifestyle through water-based activities.

The Napier Aquatic Centre also has many other services, so why not make a day of it and use the BBQ or attempt to complete our inflatable obstacle course. It's a great venue for birthday parties, corporate events or that family outing.

The Napier Aquatic Centre boasts an excellent Swim School, with over 800 participants as well as offering Aqua Fitness classes and Napier's best Holiday Programme. The complex offers the original 1973 indoor heated lap pool as well as a new complex built in 1998 that has another 25m lap pool, learners pool, toddlers area, two spa pools and two hyrdoslides.

We are proud to be part of the Community Development Department of the Napier City Council. We are devoted to providing quality facilities, for Napier residents and all visitors to Napier.
