Pioneer Sport and Recreation Centre

 

With its opening, this facility became one of a handful of wave pools in New Zealand. The leisure pool incorporates other popular features such as the raging river, interactive water sprays, bubble pit, etc. while the 25 metre lap pool meets the needs of the more serious swimmer.

Built as an adjunct to a stadium and dry sports area, this aquatic facility completes the package of services offered at the Pioneer Sport and Recreation Centre. The whole complex is aimed at being a family-orientated facility.

VDA was contracted by the City of Christchurch to provide specialist pool consultant services directly to the Christchurch City Council while working with a NZ based design team.

Pioneer Pool is the only one of three pools designed by VDA in Christchurch not to have suffered severe damage in the 6.3 magnitude earthquake in 2011.
