All seven council-owned splashpads across Tāmaki Makaurau will be open over the summer, despite water restrictions in place due to the drought.
Meanwhile, locals will be pinged for using a hose without the correct nozzle.
The council says splashpads recycle a high percentage of water, and the centres themselves have made significant water savings in the last nine months.
Do you support council turning on splashpads in the drought?

Unfortunately Monday's official opening of the new Te Onewa Northcote Wharf and the start of the Northcote ferry service have both been postponed. However the changes to the Birkenhead ferry service will begin.
Auckland Transport have said that the delay is due to the weather conditions last week that prevented the completion of ferry trials, and the confirmed case of COVID-19 transmission in lower Northland.
Stay tuned for further info.
