== Swimming pools ==
 
* Tepid Baths and Parnell Baths are two Auckland City facilities that have casual rates and gym too. When I called to check, I as informed they will allow non auckland city residents to use the pools for swimming at the casual rates. So this means you don't have to be a member.
 
* Tepid Baths
 
** Web https://aucklandleisure.co.nz/locations/central/tepid-baths/
 
** Address: 100 Customs St W, Auckland CBD.
 
** Hours: Monday – Friday: 5.30am-9pm. Weekends: 7am-7pm.
 
** Prices page https://aucklandleisure.co.nz/membership-and-prices/#TB
 
** Pools pricing is per visit. When I rang to ask the adult casual rate is $6.90 per person. So price is slightly up from the website but not that much.
 
** Indoor pools
 
  
* Parnell Baths

** There is a climbing wall BUT due to Health & Safety rules, casual club members can only go up to a certain height (boulders was the term used). Given the impression that only members of the Rock & Alpine Club may be able to use the higher levels.

* Both Tepid + Parnell Baths have a gym rate. See Swimming section above for links to website
+
** Tepid Baths has a gym. $20.70 per day is the casual rate for pool + gym
