When construction is complete in 2025, the Parakiore Recreation and Sport Centre will be the largest aquatic and indoor recreation venue in New Zealand. 

Sited in the heart of Christchurch city and an anchor project in the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan, the facility will be the South Island’s home to high performance sports, requiring substantial high-tech equipment, including Olympic level timing and scoring systems, moveable pool floors and dive pool sparge system to soften entry. 

The project is breaking new ground for this kind of facility, including the innovative use of the city’s wastewater system to aid the facility’s heating and cooling. The Aquatic Sensory Experience is also the first in the country.
