What else can you expect from Rotorua? Really lovely park with nice trails and boardwalks. There is a place where you can even dip your feet into the natural hot pool! Lush plant life, cool colors and funny signs. Free to do, so check it out!

Great little market and stroll through the park on a pleasant morning. Soak your fetl in the foot baths natural springs or get yourself a bite to eat from the many food trucks available at the market. Just remember to take cash with you.

It's not as spectacular as some of the more popular and larger sites out of town that you have to reach by car or bus, but it's only a few streets walk away from the centre of town, and it's free and open to the public 24/7.

Walked around this park on a rainy day, saw lots of steaming/mud pools but not the geyser. Not enough signs.

I often stop here if we're on a budget and I have visitors who want to see natural hot mud and thermal activity. You can soak your feet in the foot pools... often busy with Asian tourists doing the same. I like the market day in the park.

A nice place to see geothermal activity if you're in the area. It's not as grand as wai-o-taupo but it's free, uncrowded, and you can get close. There's a pool to put your feet in.

Free wander around the park with fenced thermal activity, not very active when we were there but interesting to see how it changes over the years.
