Mobility Hoists

The Foxton Pools has a specially designed mobility hoist available to lift people directly from a wheelchair into the pool, providing people with disabilities or limited mobility greater access to the benefits of water therapy.

The hoists hold up to 135kg and have five different size slings available. The hoists can be moved around five different locations around the three pools, making it very accessible for members of the public, and are available free of charge for public use.

Aquatics Horowhenua would like to thank the Horowhenua Community for enabling them to purchase the hoists.


The Foxton Pools are Poolsafe accredited. PoolSafe is a New Zealand Recreation Association and Water Safety New Zealand programme incorporating a range of initiatives aimed at reducing the number of water related injuries in and around New Zealand pools. These initiatives include educational resources, public awareness campaigns and a Quality Management Scheme for public pools.


The Foxton Pools opened in December 2007 and have become the centre for many aquatic and fitness activities. Learn to swim, aqua fitness, canoe polo, water polo and swim club are just a few programmes which are offered to the public through out the summer months.
