The Murupara Aquatic Centre is holding a family fun day this weekend to celebrate the opening of its 2019/20 season.

The opening, on this Saturday, 26 October, will feature plenty of games for all the family and a free sausage sizzle. The aquatic centre’s giant inflatable will be available for use from 11am till 3pm.

Whakatāne District Council Aquatics and Recreation Manager Andy Smith says the facility will be open from 10am to 6pm throughout the holiday weekend.

“The season-opening is always a great day, so fingers crossed the weather treats us well and people can get out and enjoy themselves.

“Entry to the pool is free, there are barbecues available for use, and our friendly Murupara aquatics team will be on hand to ensure everyone stays safe and has a great time.”
