A superb park to walk through, love the foot baths! The markets on Saturdays mornings are terrific and are so worth going to!

A lovely walk through the park to see the geothermal mud pools. Not as spectacular as other geothermal spots in Rotorua but the difference is it's free. There's a playground and toilet facilities, and a place you can even dip your feet in. Suitable for all fitness levels and ages.

A great park to wander around and see the geothermal activity that gives Rotorua it's distinctive smell. Bubbling mud ponds, crystal clear hot springs with very colourful mineral deposits and steam everywhere. The park also has a couple of foot spa areas - so roll up your pants and soak your feet while you get to know the other visitors... More

A beautiful park where you could wander around enjoying tulips and trees, as well as ponds. The difference with other parks is that in Kuirau Park the ponds are geothermally active! You could see bubbles and smoke emerge from the ponds. Dangerous and yet very attractive!

Our family loved wandering around this park to fill in an hour recently. There is a good variety of thermal areas, and also two foot soaking spas too. A playground keeps the younger children entertained. It's the perfect destination for young and old alike! :-)

This was a great activity to do with kids. It was a relaxing walk around a park like area with many geysers and bubbling mud pools. There were several food baths that were very relaxing. It is all an easy walk (or run for kids) for any ability. The grandparents also managing this easily with walking stick as it is... More

This is a fascinating natural thermal wonderland in the middle of Rotorua City and IT IS FREE. You can wander at leisure around the various steam and mud holes, cross a bridge over a boiling pond. Well worth it

You can soak your feet in the hot baths AND wander around and see plenty of steaming bubbling water - worth spending some time wandering around.

Kuirau park is a great place to get to see a whole bunch of different thermal sites. Some of the paths are closed right now, it looks like they're building nicer paths probably opening at some point later this year. The paths that are open are amazing. There's all kinds of bubbling water and mudpits. There's even a little foot... More
