Hol­i­day park on mar­ket

Cambridge Edition - - OUT & ABOUT -

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.
