Swimming in success: Apollo Projects
Christchurch’s Apollo Projects have once again proven their expertise when it comes to the design and build of leisure facilities. The team have partnered with the Christchurch City Council to deliver the fantastic Te Pou Toetoe: Linwood Pool.
The stunning $22million sports and aquatic facility is located adjacent to Linwood Park.
Its name was gifted by Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri, reflecting the local environment and the passing of knowledge from person to person and generation to generation.
The leisure centre includes a 25m lane pool, an accessible friendly family spa pool, a learn-to-swim pool, a toddlers’ splashpad which includes water toys, and the destined-to-be-a-hit bombing (manu) pool, which the local kids (big and small) will love! says Apollo Projects’ Business Development Manager Iain Ansell.
On the dry side of options are outdoor sports courts – tennis, basketball, and multi-purpose – plus a large community room including a kitchen with a service window for indoor or outdoor access.
The sunny area flows out to a large concrete patio with seating and a shade sail blending down into Linwood Park, perfect for family gatherings and community events!
Christchurch City Council Senior Project Manager Kent Summerfield says that they are delighted with the way things are coming together on site, and that there is great anticipation within the local area around the imminent opening of this fantastic community asset.
