Most of the shops in Papeete close Saturday afternoon, so we left the shopping district and walked over to Paofai Gardens. It was fun seeing families having a picnic and children playing. Overall, a lovely garden walk along the water's edge.

Nice gardens for a walk in the Centre of Papeete. Especially good for families with a nice playground but also for anyone to watch the world go by or a coffee. Plenty of runners there too if you fancy a jog

This is a lovely garden/park on the waterfront in Papeete. Our cruise stopped in Papeete and we took a trolley/train trip through the city, stopping at Paofai Gardens on that tour.

Walking around the waterfront is always enjoyable. Take a hat as the setting sun will be hot. You can bike ride around also - and enjoy seeing the differently coloured fish in seaside cages.

More a park than a garden, this is a wonderful spot for a stroll, especially in the morning or late afternoon. Lots of locals exercising, kids playing on the excellent playgrounds and canoeists on the harbour. Beautifully landscaped with a few memorials including one to...More

It's a great place to take a walk or run within walking distance of downtown Papeete and the cruise ships.
