About the Centre 
Scheduled to be completed in 2025, the Parakiore Recreation and Sports Centre is a crucial component of the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan. The world-class facility aims to serve as a central hub for sports and recreation activities, catering to individuals of all ages and abilities.

At over 30,000m2, Parakiore Recreation and Sport Centre will feature a 50-metre, 10-lane competition swimming pool and a separate diving pool, large aquatic leisure area, five hydroslides, fitness spaces and nine indoor courts for sports such as netball, volleyball and basketball. The facility will cater for the needs of the recreational, educational and high performance sporting communities. From day-to-day recreational needs to hosting national and international events, the centre will exemplify excellence and accessibility.

Infrastructure projects are complex and challenging. Rau Paenga enables the delivery of Crown infrastructure projects. Read more about Rau Peanga and the Parakiore Project here.
