Motakiora/Brook Park top section closed until further notice
For health and safety reasons, Waitomo District Council has closed the top section of Motakiora/ Brook Park for ALL recreational use until further notice.
As a result of the weekend’s heavy rainfall event, a section of track to the summit is hazardous and a large slip has taken out part of the mountain bike track, which is also popular with walkers.
There is risk of further multiple slips and damage if the rain continues.
The rotunda and toilet is still accessible, however we urge residents and users to exercise caution if entering this area.
Signage advising of the closure will be erected onsite soon. Please do not venture into the red zone.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Waitomo District Aquatic Centre

24 Sep 2014, 3:00 PM

WDC has entered into a fixed term arrangement for the provision of services for the day to day operation of the Waitomo District Aquatic Centre with Community Leisure Management (CLM). 

This arrangement is for the coming pool season (October 2014 to April 2015). Any further future arrangements will be subject to a review of the 2014/15 season. 

CLM is a well known NZ company based in Hamilton that specialises in providing service delivery arrangements for community facilities.

CLM will provide comprehensive training for its staff and intend to offer a wide range of activities including swimming lessons and Aquatic exercise classes.

Entry fees for the Aquatic Centre will remain the same (no increase from the 2013 fees) and the opening hours will be matched to last year’s. CLM might offer additional access hours if appropriate. The Aquatic Centre opens on Wednesday 1 October 2014.

This arrangement will benefit the Waitomo community and offers qualified staff focussed on providing a family friendly facility and a safe, healthy and hygienic environment for our customers.

WDC invited pool stakeholders from Te Kuiti, Piopio, Benneydale and Waitomo Caves to a meeting on Wednesday 24th September at the Waitomo District Council chambers.
