Is a clean environment. Its lovely gardens to walk around, water foundation and a beach. Although the beach is not a swimming beach. It has it's own concrete walking path used by the locals extensively everyday. There is an area to have a free BBQ provided by the local council, a huge bonus for all. There is shelter and seating...

Great for walking, cycling or just standing and looking out to sea or along the coastline. Recommend cycling along the beachfront towards Ahuri for a different beach perspective. The local authority have made a fabulous job as the design, sculptures and gardens are fabulous. Well done Napier City!

Is the shiny, suspended orb an eye-ball or the new Sun rising from the South Pacific? It really doesn't matter - it's just cool to find the place where this... More

wow, some changes here since the last time. The parade is looking great, very family oriented. Unfortunately our grandmother couldn't walk much this day, so we didn't get to look at all of it. But it is made for families to spend time here, to enjoy the time at the beach. Great spot to go for a walk, play with... More
