Welcome to Hamilton Pools

Hamilton Pools comprises Waterworld (Garnett Ave in Te Rapa/Forest Lake) and Gallagher Aquatic Centre (Collins Road, next to Melville High School), and both facilities are owned and operated by Hamilton City Council.

We’re excited and proud to provide our community and visitors to our city with a range of services – whether you’re a serious competitive swimmer, you swim for health and fitness, looking for a way to entertain the kids, or striving to achieve some personal health and well-being goals.

The Hamilton Pools facilities provide quality, safe and affordable fun for the whole family. We aim to deliver world-class service to meet the needs of all customers, young or old, casual or committed, competitive or recreational.

We are also proud to be part of the PoolSafe NZ programme,  which  incorporates a range of initiatives at reducing the number of water-related injuries in and around New Zealand pools.

We are dedicated to promote health, recreation and rehabilitation through swimming and water activities.
