Tauranga Memorial Park is the city’s premier park. Sitting next to the harbour, Memorial Park features two very popular playgrounds, a water fountain, skate ramp (half pipe), mini putt and a miniature railway plus much more.
Here you can bring the kids and have them explore the park with plenty of things to do. The playgrounds are large and feature all kinds of fun and obstacles for the kids to enjoy.
The miniature railway is also a popular feature of Memorial Park. Kids absolutely love going on this miniature train as they ride around the park, through tunnels and past the playgrounds back around to the station.
Humpty Dumpty also sits here within the park, now 50 years old, kids love to see to this just as much as anything else.
Through out the year are also a variety of events from circuses to markets and gypsy fairs. Plus much more. These events are generally quite popular and are hosted on the large field as you drive in towards the park on Devonport road.
Whether you want to get the kids out for the day or head out for a picnic with the family, Tauranga’s premier park is a great place for the whole family to relax and enjoy.
