The Huharua Harbour Park opened during 2010 at the end of Plummers Point Road, Te Puna. The new park is a sub-regional park owned by Tauranga City Council and Western Bay of Plenty District Council, which worked to make the site more accessible to the local community. The site is located in Tauranga and falls under the jurisdiction of the WBOP District Council. As a sub-regional park, it’s focus is on the arts and culture of the region.

A reconstructed Whakaruruhau is a significant feature of Huharua Harbour Park. The reconstructed Whakaruruhu is a highlight of the park, which features two levels and a playground. The playground has a number of children’s activities while the park also includes a nature walk and a nature trail.

The park is also home to a Wairoa River Historic Ride route, which is a great way to learn about local history.

A path winds through the park to the beach and the estuary. There is also a shady tree at the base of the trail, where you can sit and enjoy the scenery. This is a wonderful place for children to explore. There are many places to eat, and there are also several local attractions in the area. The Wairoa River Historic Ride route is just one of the many highlights of the park.

The Western Bay of Plenty District and Tauranga City Council bought the land from the Thorne family in 2003. The 8.7 hectare reserve is now a passive public park that features a thriving bird life. In addition, it is home to geocaches and has a great harbourside environment.

The community has always been proud of its history. There are numerous historical markers but the area is often overlooked by those who live and work in the area.
