Spa Park’s Otumuheke Stream hot pools have been spruced up and are set to reopen this Friday 31st!
A new bridge has been installed further upstream, the surrounding area has been cleared of blackberry brambles, toilets and changing rooms have been added to the area and rubbish bins have been added closer to the stream.
The council partnered with Patuiwi Reserve Trust, Tūwharetoa Trust Board and the Department of Conservation to develop the spot.
Patuiwi Reserve Trust owns a block of land north of the pools. Patuiwi, a Ngāti Tūwharetoa hapū, is expected to operate a coffee kiosk within a converted shipping container on this land.
