New Zealand’s Outdoor Myrthas: Built To Last!

With much of the world appropriately on hold while we all try to help minimize the effects of COVID-19, we thought we’d take this opportunity to share the story of a couple outdoor Myrtha facilities in New Zealand that have withstood the tests of time!

Arrowtown Memorial Pool

First, the Arrowtown Memorial Pool, a facility that was built in the 1950s and renovated in 2004 using Myrtha’s proprietary RenovAction technology. The complex houses an outdoor pool ideal for both training and recreational swimming. Despite years of use, the pool has needed only one tune-up since the Myrtha upgrade: a heating system was installed to make it possible to enjoy the pool earlier in the spring and later into the fall.

Even in winter, have no fear, Arrowtown residents can hop over to nearby Queenstown and train at the Alpine Aqualand complex. Another Myrtha project, the Aqualand has 6 pools, ranging from a competition pool, to a learning pool, to a lazy river and more, perfectly providing for a vibrant community year-round.

Geraldine Aquatic Complex

Our second hidden gem is the Town of Geraldine’s Aquatic Centre, surrounded by old-growth forests and an indigenous reserve. Installed in 2002, the facility is home to not one but two heated outdoor pools: a 6-lane 25m pool and a children’s pool.

Together, these Myrtha projects show the strength of our technology, built to endure in any environment and provide for their communities for many years to come.
