Lovely park to walk around and see some geothermal activity for free in central Rotorua. Even have warm foot baths if you want to soak your feet. Great spot to take the kids aswell as there is a playground for them to play in.

Nice park with good playground for kids and some geothermal activity. There is no fee for entrance so it’s a good deal if you are around and have done the main Rotorua activities.
