New Waikuku Paddling Pool Opened: Another Step on the Way to Recovery

A beautiful day, a crowd of kids and the new whale pool in Waikuku is open!  I did the honours with a little boy called Tom.

The pool was up for a major upgrade in 2010 when the September quake finished it off.

It wasn’t well publicised, but Waikuku Beach sustained quite a lot of damage in that quake: to dwellings, underground pipes, the hall and, of course, the paddling pool.
