The countdown is on to the opening of the New Brighton hot pools, He Puna Taimoana.
The pools are due to open in the first weekend of April, and include a sauna and café alongside five varying temperature pools. See here for more information.
In 1928 other pools were proposed in New Brighton, rather opulent saltwater swimming baths. While never built, some stunning architectural plans were drawn up and the Macmillan Brown Library holds these in their collections.
