What a beautiful park to have a relaxing stroll. It is capped by a free to use natural hot spring flowing into the river. Young and old enjoy the soothing hot springs.

This is a great little alcove to sit in lovely warm water, just on the edge of the Waikato River. Make sure you don't park at the carpark near the main road, there's another one closer to the water.
