Visited this lovely site pre covid as a couple but this time we took our 2 grandchildren who loved the statues. They are both aware of the books as we read to them. They both noticed that a tail was missing from one of the animals!? Still brings a smile to our faces.

The sculptures inspired us to buy the books. Our grandchildren love the books and enjoy seeing pictures of us with the sculpture characters.

Most children are familiar with these story book characters and the bronze statues are great to climb on and just have fun.

If this is the 8th best thing to do in Tauranga after you've walked up and around the mount and then had a swim at the beach, we've got a problem!

This is literally 6 or so statues from the Hairy Maclary book... great for kids and anyone who is passionate about the book, but that's literately about it...

Beautifully crafted sculptures. Excellent location. So enjoyed by so many people. Well done to the person who had the vision to bring this to Tauranga!

We spent way more time here than we anticipated. Apart from the sculptures, the playground was extensive and had enough to keep our three kids (4, 6, 8) entertained. The steps into the water was pretty cool to. Make sure you bring a change of clothes! The only gripe I have is the lack of toilets and changing rooms. There were only two toilets for the whole area. But overall, a great time was had by all.

Great photo opportunity at Tauranga waterfront. these character statues all look like they are in full motion, and the face of the cat above Hairy Maclary is angry and life like, the sculpture deserves high praise for bringing these charcters to life.

Our daughter loved the Hairy McLary stories. Even if you're not a New Zealander, and particularly if you have young kids, this sculpture on the Tauranga waterfront is well worth a visit.

Grandson loved climbing over , on and around the dogs. He is a bit too young to know the characters but he will certainly be introduced to them.

Situated on the waterfront in Tauranga these well behaved pets get plenty of attention! I personally think they are a great idea and they certainly bring a smile to your face. I do recognise a couple of others from my granddaughters books - Hercules Morse and Bitzer Maloney.
