Holiday park on market
first built in the 1960s, the park’s main swimming pool was used as the town’s public swimming venue by local residents and primary school pupils.
Te Aroha’s therapeutic thermal waters were discovered in the late 1880s when the town was a domestic tourist magnet - drawing thousands of visitors from across the Auckland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions.
The Te Aroha Holiday Park at 217 Stanley Road South on the outskirts of the town contains a multitude of accommodation options – ranging from powered caravan and tent sites, through to variously configured budget cabins and self-contained cottages.
The site has been operating as a camp ground for five decades – servicing a core group of holidaymakers who regularly camp at the holiday park every Christmas/New Year break, as well as the short-stay ‘‘free independent travellers’’ sector, and most recently by a growing number of recreational cyclists.
Te Aroha Holiday Park freehold land, buildings and business are being marketed for sale at auction on November 9 through Bayleys Hamilton.
