“Great fun for All”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

While our toddler was enjoying the swings in the park, our family of adults enjoyed the walk around the park of the Geothermal sites and also the pool where you could dip your feet in.

“Nice Way To See Thermal Pools For Free!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

We visited here before leaving Rotorua. It's a nice park to walk around and would be ideal for things like picnics.

It has some amazing looking hot pools that you can see deep inside, and I actually felt a little freaked at one point, thinking about how all that is sitting right below Rotorua!

While there, we said a prayer for the poor boy that lost his life after falling into one of the pools :'(

“OK If You Have Some Time To Kill”
3 of 5 bubbles 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”
4 of 5 bubbles 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!
