Will you be visiting New Brighton's new hot pools?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Tickets for the first three days of Christchurch's new hot pools sold out in less than 24 hours.

The Christchurch City Council confirmed on Tuesday that the New Brighton hot salt water pools, named He Puna Taimoana, will open on Saturday, the start of Queen's Birthday Weekend.

By Wednesday morning, the website for the hot pools showed all 600 available slots had been booked out for Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Tuesday still had plenty of spots available.

Entry to the new pools is allowed only through online bookings, and sessions are limited to 50 people due to Covid-19 restrictions.
