Extended splash pad at Harcourt Park paddling pool ready for summer use next week

Upper Hutt’s popular toddlers’ paddling pool will once again open for the summer season at Harcourt Park next Wednesday.

UPPER HUTT, Wellington NZ, 18 NOV 2016—Harcourt Park’s paddling pool will reopen on Wednesday 23 November. The summer season will last until late March 2017 but may be extended if weather permits.

The paddling pool is sporting its newly extended splash pad which was installed last season. New shade sails have also been installed as part of the upgrade.

Upper Hutt residents and visitors are invited to enjoy the facility’s atmosphere alongside Harcourt Park’s other great amenities, which include free electric barbecues, two adventure playgrounds, a children’s learn-to-ride cycle track, and wonderful green surrounds, walkways, and open spaces. Rest room facilities are also available at the park.

Large groups wanting to use the park’s amenities for particular functions are advised to book one of the available designated picnic areas with Upper Hutt City Council. Areas can be booked online at www.upperhuttcity.com/parks-reserves/book-a-park

This pool is not staffed, so parental supervision is required for all children in the pool area. Upper Hutt City Council advises families to be sun-smart and requests that users keep the area clean and tidy for everyone to enjoy.
