Great free alternative in Rota, the park is named after the lake which in one's opinion is fantastic. Parks off Ranolf street near a rocky mound, walk north to lake boardwalk. Best enjoyed on chilly morning when steam is high.
Some parts were closed due to maintenance. The rest of the park was nice to walk in. The hot (foot) pools were also closed.

Nice park in the centre of town with geothermal activity.
Nice park in the middle of town. It is cool to see everywhere the geothermal activities. And the park is well done.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
A free park to see some geothermal action. Forget the smell and see the mud and the water.
First impression was like it was very smelly, but was nice to see. After 4 pits it all looked the same to me.
They stink but they look really cool also. Makes you realise that underneath these concrete jungles, the earth is busy bubbling away underneath.
Walk through the park and see many mud pools without paying an entrance fee!
Interesting, but super smelly, my stomach turned around giving me an intense desire to vomit!
Cool experience getting to know the city on our own. Really nice at Kuirau Park.
The park is located in walking distance to the city. It shows a bit of Rotorua thermal activity, but nothing compared to any of the paid thermal parks. It is still interesting and free, so worth a visit.
Here I got my first impression of the thermal pools. Very special and I liked the smell.
Cool, free park in Rotorua where you can see some of the thermal activity that others make you pay for in the area.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
