Public Places

We feature wheelchair accessibility, hoist and private changing rooms only steps from the poolside. The benefits of warm water exercise are tremendous and have an extremely positive impact on the quality of life for all ages. The Physio Pool is a key health and recreational facility for the Dunedin community.

Built in 1946, the Physio Pool has been instrumental in establishing new standards in hydrotherapy. It was the first purpose-built pool for the rehabilitative treatment of patients in New Zealand. Open to the public it offers a warm, non threatening environment for injury rehabilitation, people with disabilities and arthritis sufferers as well as offering swimming lessons and aqua fitness classes.

Organisation details:

The Otago Therapeutic Pool Trust was established in 1983, to maintain the use of the pool for therapeutic purposes by patients from hospitals in Otago and for the general public. The Trust’s main role has been to operate the public sessions and provide qualified life-guards, provisioning of facilities and cleaning. The Southern District Health Board is no longer providing any funding so the Trust will also have to shoulder the entire responsibility for the pool including funding future maintenance and upgrades.
