Spring Hill Corrections Facility

Spring Hill Corrections Facility is located on a 215 hectare site near Meremere in the Waikato and is one of the country's biggest prisons.

It was one of four new prisons that opened between 2005 and 2007 and is designed quite differently to traditional prisons.

A highly secure perimeter fence encloses a large open space containing a range of separate buildings for accommodation and services.
