Public consultation closes today on a plan to move two schools in Christchurch to the QEII site.
The sports facility was badly damaged in the 2011 earthquakes and has since been demolished.
Under the proposal, the quake-damaged Avonside Girls' and Shirley Boys' High Schools would be moved to the land, and a $37 million pool built.
The city council has been consulting about the proposal to sell the 11.5 hectares to the Ministry of Education.
A submission by the group Keep QEII in the East said it supported relocating the high schools, but they should not go to the particular land the ministry wants to buy.
The group said the community was split over the proposal.
Hearings are scheduled next month.
