Click to expand (Above: A future vision for a Thames Sport Precinct) As the current sports facilities at Rhodes Park are sited in the Kauaeranga River spillway, this site is subject to periodic flooding and can not be further developed. This project will involve the relocation of the sports facility and provide improved facilities into the future. The proposed new pool site is large enough to be developed as a sports precinct in the future, hosting the sporting facilities that are currently at Rhodes Park. Funding for this project is in the 2021-31 Long Term Plan with $7.61 million between 2025-2028. A future vision for the site is shown above and any future development would require external funding.
