This is am great free activity. Nice amount of steaming pools and bubbling mud to entertain the children. Perfect on a cool day when the steam is billowingand creating some maBic.

Nice park with good playground for kids and some geothermal activity. There is no fee for entrance so it’s a good deal if you are around and have done the main Rotorua activities.

It is the free nice park near CBD of Rotorua. A lot of thermal activities and pools. If someone don't want to spend money and want to experience the feeling of walking around the thermal valley - this is the place. Many spots for photo...More

Great place to see boiling mud and all kinds of thermal eruptions. Also two places to take your shoes and socks off and dip your feet into thermal waters. Cool, no hot, but cool to feel the hot water - Do not miss and it...More

We just took our kids to Kuirau Park this morning upon our arrival to Rotorua! It was a really great free attraction to take our kids too. There were much needed bathrooms after our long trip. They were a bit worse for wear, but did...More

Nice free activity. Short but interesting walk. Couldn't find the car park very easily, unfortunately.

Not as good as the paid places, but fun for the kids for free. If it's been raining there often isn't mud, just boiling water. Glad we went though.

The whole of Rotorua generally has that smell lingering. I wouldn't say its strong but it is very subjective. Some people do get affected by the slightest while I may have a slightly higher tolerance.
