Host your child's next birthday party at Ashburton Pool and Recreation Centre.

Our parties are perfect for children aged 6-12 years old. We'll organise everything - the entertainment, catering and clean-up - so you can just sit back and enjoy the day. Beyond birthdays, our parties are also great team building activities for school groups, sports teams and social clubs.

We offer two styles of parties at Ashburton: Pool Parties and Stadium Parties.

  • Pool parties
    Children enjoy an hour of aquatic activities led by qualified instructors, followed by thirty minutes to celebrate in the party room.
  • Stadium parties
    An hour of sports and active games led by qualified instructors, tailored to your child's interests, followed by thirty minutes to celebrate in the party room.
