Birkenhead Pool and Leisure Centre

Birkenhead Pool and Leisure Centre is home to Auckland Council Pools and Leisure's premier rock wall. Climbing equipment can be hired and free instruction is provided for beginners.

A new climbing wall is now in use and has doubled our climbs, giving customers 26 lines to play on. This new wall has angles based on realistic outside crags and is perfect for transitioning into outdoor climbing.

This wall can cater for all levels of ability.

ITT - Integrated Team Training is Birkenhead's exciting new advanced fitness facility that makes full functioning training, sports conditioning and the latest training tools available to users of all levels and ability.

The facility also offers outdoor adventure activities, including kayaking, mountain biking, snorkelling and team building; Education Outside the Classroom programmes; and holiday programmes.

The facility is situated next to Osborne Pool, a 33-metre outdoor heated pool and a popular skateboard park.
