Cnr Upper High St, Waihi Rd. Hawera
South Taranaki District Council
King Edward Park, Edwardian in ancestry, its charmingly formal design is home to floral borders and rose gardens, grassy avenues and aged trees. Ducks and occasional model yachts reflect in the century-old boating pond and the unique Wendy statue searches endlessly for the lost boys in an avenue of mature rhododendrons. Seek out some of the park’s hidden features along pathways offering different perspectives of its ever-changing gardens, or enjoy a picnic in a sylvan setting.
Open daily, admission free
