“Now beautifully landscaped”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

I hardly recognised Kuirai Park, 18 years after my previous visit because of the lovely green lawns, flower beds and beautiful gardens. Eighteen years ago I thought it an interesting but ugly place and quite dangerous. The addition of landscaping and safety fences make a world of difference. The warm, running foot pool was a hit.

“Free geothermal walk and foot spas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Great free geothermal activity right in the middle of Rotorua. There is plenty to see and two free warm foot spas to enjoy. Definitely a great way to see some geothermal activity for those who do not have time to go out to one of the bigger parks just out of Rotorua.

“Thermal vents ....!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Its amazing to see a park right in the Rotorua city with thermal vents and hot springs in it!
Its nice to roam around, see the thermal vents with hot mud and rocks fuming all the time.

“Free way to spend a few hours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Great FREE geothermal walks and sight seeing. you can see the evidence that this park used to be for children to play in before the geothermal activity started to make the ground unsteady. Well worth a look.

“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We spent ages walking around seeing all the thermal activity, we were so impressed that we cancelled seeing Wai O Tapu because we knew that we had seen enough at this free park.
Kuirau is a must do for Rotorua!
