Myers Park upgrade
The Waitemata Local Board is proud to be supporting a Myers Park
Development Plan for the future of the park. Myers Park is a hidden gem
located in the heart of the city centre.
This historic park will be coming up to
its 100 year anniversary and the local
board is passionate about fulflling the
original intent of the parks creator,
former mayor Arthur Myers, who
donated the land.
The local boards guiding principles for
the future park development are:
a green lung in the city
a place of discovery for children
a slice of living history
a peaceful, high quality retreat
a place to showcase art.
A public open day will be held
Saturday, 16 June from 12pm - 4pm
to gather feedback on the draft
development plan. To fnd out more,
visit our webpage.
The Tepid Baths closed in April 2010 for repairs and
a major makeover.
Built in 1914, this iconic landmark is almost
100 years old and is registered as a historic building
by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust and
The $15.8 million redevelopment has taken care
of the deeper structural issues that arent readily
visible. Considerable work has been put into restoring
heritage features throughout the redevelopment of
the building, such as the poolside cabanas.
The main lap pool has been extended from six to seven
lanes to cater for more demand and a new separate
ftness centre with state of the art equipment has been
added on the second foor, which overlooks the pool.
The layout of the entire facility has been improved
with new expanded changing rooms, spa, sauna and
steam room. New plant and equipment will improve
the air and water quality.
Waitemata Local Board is pleased to have this grand
dame in the heart of the City Centre back in action.
Its been beautifully restored in keeping with its
heritage feel. Its a prized asset not only for the local
residents and those who work in the city but to all of
Auckland, says Chair Shale Chambers.
