Kuirau Park is situated in the middle of town. Walking tracks lead to numerous areas of vigorous geothermal activity. Visitors are strongly encouraged to stay on the cool side of the safety fences! The free Kuirau Park Footbaths are remarkable for soaking your feet in. Keep in mind this is a footbath, so bathing is not advised. Enjoy the lovely surroundings, especially on cool days as steam from geothermal vents surround you.
