“Nice free place to visit”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

This park is definitely one to visit if you have kids. The park is free, there are a few kids play activities. The thermal attractions are reasonable considering the park is free. There are even a couple of small areas where you can soak your feet in warm water. (Again free...)

“lovely park”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Kuirau Park is a great way to enjoy the thermal area, in which Rotorua is located, for free. It's not as big as Te Puia or Whakarewarewa but its still very impressive! There are a few hot pools, where you can put your feed in, too.

“Really cool (and smelly!)”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

A good place to start in Rotorua: this park is filled with about 20-30 fenced enclosures of bubbling water or mud hot pools and lots of sulphur steam, and you can walk around this large park for free. There's also a great kids' playground nearby.
There are mud pools, bubbling water, and lots of sulphur steam - you can walk across a bridge through the sulphur gas. Be careful not to inhale too much of the sulphur gas or you'll feel ill later on.

“A great free activity”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

If you are on a tight budget, visiting Kuirau Park provides you with multiple smaller boiling mud pools and steaming ponds. Worth coinciding it with the markets.
