About the pool

Clive War Memorial Pool

Open year round, the Clive War Memorial Pool is a 25 metre, indoor heated pool surrounded by Farndon Park and on the edge of the Clive River.

Home to the Trojans Swim Club, Clive Pool features superb Learn to Swim classes and dedicated lanes for water play and lap swimming. If you prefer to work out with others, our AquaFit classes cater for all fitness levels.

A base for the Waimarama Surf Club and Hawke’s Bay Canoe Polo, Clive Pool is also used for school learn to swim and water safety classes.

There’s always fun to be had at Clive Pool with giant inflatables often entertaining the kids during the weekend in Winter and school holidays. Please note: children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by a caregiver over 16 years on the inflatables. We have the right to shut down the inflatables as the situation demands.

Speaking of fun, consider holding your child’s next birthday at Clive Pool. Find out more on our Aqua Fun page

The main pool is heated to 28 degrees and the learner’s pool to 31 degrees.

Please note: due to learn-to-swim lessons the Learner Pool will be closed to the general public between the hours of 9am-11am and 3:30pm-6pm Monday to Friday and 8:30am – 12:30pm on Saturdays.

Open hours

Normal operating hours:

  • Monday – Thursday 6am – 7.15pm
  • Friday 6am – 5:30pm
  • Saturday 9am – 3.30pm­
  • Sunday 10am – 3.30pm

Please note: due to learn-to-swim lessons the Learner Pool will be closed to the general public between the hours of 9am-11am and 3:30pm-6pm Monday to Friday and 8:30am – 12:30pm on Saturdays.

Why do we close the Learner Pool to the general public during lessons?

Limiting access to the Learner Pool during Learn to Swim classes helps us minimize the irritating and strong smelling substances formed in pool water when impurities introduced on the bodies of swimmers combine with chlorine.  The more bodies in the pool mean the more impurities entering the water.  Many people identify that smell as the smell of chlorine when in fact, that stringent odour is from a substance created by those impurities reacting with chlorine. This is not only a popular pool but also relatively small so the accumulation of impurities can happen quickly without these necessary measures put in place.

We greatly appreciate your assistance with this.
