“a great little river walk”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

This pathway is full of not only murals but very informative signs and many fmous sayings sitting on boulders along the pathway. There are various seats to relax on along the path and it is great to get out there for a stroll and enjoy the fresh air and greenery

“Had never heard of Haiku until this”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

I knew nothing about Haiku until I saw these stones and then returned to my room to Google them. The setting was delightful. The words, simple but meaningful. I think that everyone would find at least one stone that impacted on them........even if they were a cynic!

“HAIKU - a unique walk amidst poetry”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

We discovered, right in the heart of Katikati township, a delightful park on the banks of the Uretara Stream containing a number of boulders etched with short poems: Haiku. This apparently the largest collection of Haiku outside Japan.

The setting is delightful with the stream, mature trees, paths and seats plus these wonderful thoughtful poems, making it the perfect spot for a quiet, relaxing stroll while reflecting on the poetry. Some will make you smile and one that caught my attention especially on sunny September day with people out fishing on the stream for the elusive whitebait:
“Whitebait season ..
Fishermen fritter away the day”
