“OK If You Have Some Time To Kill”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

The best thing is that it is free. There are lots of hot pool, mud pools etc however they aren't amazing to look at, if you want to see some real thermal attractions, go to Wai-o-tapu. Sometimes I didn't feel too safe in some parts ( I was on my own) and 2 girls coming from a path near one of the pools warned me that there was a man peeping/hiding....

“Serene little park with bubbling mud everywhere for the curious”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

This park is right next to the public children's playground, with sulphur smells and bubbling mud and waters fenced up, complete with free thermal warm pools to soak your feet in, or soak yourself in, for the adventurous. Best thing is, it's all free!

“Free Mud and Steam Vents”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

This is a lovely park with FREE access to bubbling pools of mud and lots of steam vents. The Rotorua Farmer's Market is also held here and is worth a visit. The park also has a large indoor pool that is open to the public for a fee. There are also gorgeous gardens and the largest azalea I have ever seen. I'm including a photo.

“Very nice park to spend time in.”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

We walked around this park for several hours looking at all the different types of thermal activity. There are even pools you can sit and soak your feet in if you chose to. The landscaping is quite lovely and the walkways help quide you from one thermal pool to another. We took lots of pictures in this park and really enjoyed exploring it.
