Welcome to Piopio, A Thriving Village Nestled Between The
World Famous Waitomo Caves and The Rugged Taranaki Coast



The opening of the Piopio Community Swimming Pool was in time for some sweltering temperatures. Record numbers of users have flocked to the pools as the days get hotter.
As schools return, the community pool will cater for 80+ students in a volunteer run, Learn to Swim programme afterschool. The introductory to swimming programme caters for 5 –10 year olds and provides entry level and basic swimming safety and skills, through to stroke development. Demand for these lessons are already booked and further enforces the necessities of these skills for children, with record number of drownings nationally.
Following on swimmers can join the Piopio Swimming Club which caters for more advanced technique and stroke development training.
The pool will also be open for adult swimmers 6-7am and 6-7pm weeknights. The Swimming Pool trust group are keen to make this pool open to as many users as possible and have also offered to mind preschool children whilst parents use the pool for recreation or fitness.
Since the establishment of the Piopio Community Swimming Pools Charitable Trust in 2015, the pool has enhanced the complex significantly with many upgrades to filter systems, security and maintenance of operational systems.
The ongoing need to keep this service open can be supported by contributing to the “Buy a brick” campaign. This sponsorship is invaluable and a plaque will be erected on the sponsors wall within the complex.
