Swimming at Onehunga Pool

Dive in and make a splash with YMCA Onehunga Pools

Swimming at Onehunga Pools has something to offer the whole family. With a variety of indoor and outdoor facilities, swimming at Onehunga Pools can be a way to cool off or to warm up, depending on the time of year and what you’re looking for.

With everything from a dedicated learn-to-swim pool and a 33m outdoor pool, to a safe and shallow toddler pool and a 3.6m deep dive well, there really is a whole lot that you can do at our YMCA managed Onehunga pools.

As well as our facilities for casual swimmers, we also have a variety of different swimming lesson options so that no matter you or your child’s age or stage, there’s a chance to learn something from seasoned professionals who are here to help swimmers push themselves and have fun doing it.
