With sunny skies keeping the beaches packed, the Cannons Creek Pool's $250,000 will be a welcome addition to the Porirua suburb.

The pool reopened on the weekend after being closed over Christmas and new year while renovations were carried out by Porirua City Council.

As well as cosmetic upgrades, new family changing rooms and non-slip floors, the pool also had staff facilities upgraded and the pool slide replaced with a dual inflatable slide.

Porirua mayor Nick Leggett said the upgrade would make the much-loved pool a better space for the community.

"It's now an even better place for the community to come together. The pool sees 700 kids through its doors every week and generations of the city's residents have learned to swim there - including myself."

The upgrade also served as proof of the council's investment in the Eastern Porirua suburb, Mr Leggett said.

"This is a $250,000 investment and locals can have confidence that the Council is committed to providing services there as in any other part of the city."

The pool would continue to help with learn to swim programmes, particularly through local schools.
