Quaint Low rise Art Deco buildings across the street, the expanse of Hawkes Bay divided by gardens, a few interesting buildings. Check out what is going on at the Foot of Tennyson street. We stumbled onto a late afternoon occasion with food vendors, I've music and dancing. Magical

The gardens between the beach and the main road are full of flower beds, water features and sculptures. If you follow the town map walk it will bring you to the gardens. By following the gardens there are many more interesting houses on the front.

We really enjoyed walking and biking up and down the parade. There is a fantastic walking/biking trail. Very smooth. The council go to great lengths to maintain it. Lots of interesting things to do or places to sit along it

Beautifully maintained gardens- a pleasure to stroll down and see where the sea used to come to before 1931

Take a stroll along the marine parade and you will find great activities for all the family. Known as the Art Decor town Napier will not let you down.

I have just finished a 45 minute walk along the parade. Along it you will find a wonderful park, bmx track, freedom camping sites, fountains, memorials, an exercise area, grass areas for picnics for miles, many toilets, the aquarium, a long, long biking and walking track that goes for miles alongside all these things to do and it is flat.

This is a most pleasant path to walk. It stretches for a long way close to the beach and grassed area. There are some interesting artworks on the way too.

Marine Parade is wonderful and a must visit for families in Napier. There are beautiful gardens, multiple fountains and all sorts of sculptures all along the waterfront. We enjoyed a fountain paddle, a beach walk and the awesome playground and bike park (with real working traffic lights). Loved it and will be back!

We were glad to find that our Motel was right on Marine Parade and it was an easy and interesting walk into the centre of town each evening.
