Been here twice, both times at least one part closed for roadworks, or now, our famous earthquake strengthening. The footpath is good and some nice gardens and statues, if somewhat mid 20th century like. Watchout for aggressive motorists, uncontrolled kids and cretins on bicycles who mow down pedestrianos

Who ever is the planning managers on Marine Parade give yourself a pat on the back. I have not been here for ages and it is just beautiful. It caters for all ages with the 3 parks, the skate park, the ice cream shop and the food trucks/cafes. The BBQ area, fountains and glass ended wharf are just stunning. Areas... More

We stayed along Marine Parade and it was so handy to many local eateries, parks, attractions and more. It follows along the beachfront with a wonderful view and plenty to do both day and evening. I reccommend walking along and you will find something to do on every budget. Very suitable for families with children as there are great parks... More

Possibly my favourite attraction so far in NZ (living here 7 years!) and a great place to spend a day with children - so much to do, not enough time!!

Taking a walk or riding a bike on Marine Parade is a must see whilst in Napier to take advantage of seeing everything along the boardwalk. From the Pania statue, to the viewing platform and all along the waterfront, this is a great way to enjoy some of the highlights of Napier's waterfront. And best of all it's free with... More

An easy way to spend a few hours with the kids :) Lovely for walking, great for bike riding and mini golf and the Aquarium at either end. You can't go to Napier and not walk along Marine Parade.

This is a pleasant area to potter along. there is some building work going on , but this didn't detract from our walk. The carpark at one end of it is useful for walking into town, but on section of it is set aside for freedom camping of fully contained motorhomes and camper vans -very useful

Beautiful sunny walk along the seafront and admired the fantastic view overlooking the sea towards Cape Kidnappers. Some lovely Art Deco status en route plus sunken gardens - very pretty!

Awesome spot. Beach front was lovely and a good place for a morning walk. Good park areas for families and restaurants to visit. Lots to see.
