“Lovely walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

It's always an excellent stroll around Marine Parade and more so in the sun! There's a lot of gardens, Pania of the Reef which is a famous New Zealand statue and a focus for photographers. A sound-shell, and lots of historic points of interest.

“Nice on Marine, shame about the noise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Marine Parade is a wonderful complement to the fine art deco city of Napier. Lots going on here most of the day and a pleasant place for a stroll. Just a shame that so many huge and noisy trucks use the adjacent esplanade route to get to the port.

“With Grandson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

This stretch of road, paving and grass on the edge of the sea is now packed with things to do for all ages We took my grandson to the bike park - but he wasn't interested in rising his bike....preferring to run around! So we left there and joined the other littlies in the playground. I am so proud of Napier for providing such a great place for locals and tourists to play.

“Marine Parade”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The Marine Parade has recently been overhauled and beautified.The children's playground and the biking/scooter area next to this will keep kids entertained for hours.Also available are barbecues to enjoy a picnic by the beach(which is not suitable for swimming).After all the excitement head to ice-cream parlours for a delicious ice-cream.

“Walk into oblivion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

On the marine, it's like you could walk for ever. On one side the beautiful blue sea and sky seem to meet and on the other there are splendid Art Deco houses. Along it are the Flower Clock, the refreshing Tom Parker Fountain, the statue of a young Maori woman, the Art Deco colonnade... We also walked on Emerson and Tennyson Str. with their even more splendid Art Deco buildings and the exhibition of old cars. So much to see...
