I ❤ New Brighton

I ❤ New Brighton is an annual event held in Thompson Park to celebrate life in Brighton and the fantastic spirit of the community.

Eastern Community Sport and Recreation is on the organising committee and is responsible for the “Active Zone” which gives the opportunity for local sports clubs to run have a go activities in order to connect local kids with local sports clubs.

The event has been extremely successful with the annual event being held on Waitangi Day Monday attracting 5000 people to Thompson Park.
We will back on 7th February 2022.


Cool stuff we have done

$2 Pool

The “$2 Pool” arose from a need for the children of the New Brighton area to have access to a swimming pool. We received funding to operate over the summer months with a full time Manager for the 3 years whilst Tairoa QEII was being built.

We operated outside of school hours – and full time over weekends and during the school holidays. The “$2 Pool” attracted over 8000 visits.
