This park is along the waterfront port of Tahiti. Absolutely gorgeous during the day as well as sunset/evening. Benches throughout if you choose to sit and soak in the atmosphere. Highly recommend. Little outdoor cafe’s at the south end.

Most of the shops in Papeete close Saturday afternoon, so we left the shopping district and walked over to Paofai Gardens. It was fun seeing families having a picnic and children playing. Overall, a lovely garden walk along the water's edge.

Nice gardens for a walk in the Centre of Papeete. Especially good for families with a nice playground but also for anyone to watch the world go by or a coffee. Plenty of runners there too if you fancy a jog

This is a lovely garden/park on the waterfront in Papeete. Our cruise stopped in Papeete and we took a trolley/train trip through the city, stopping at Paofai Gardens on that tour.

It was a great place to spend a quiet Sunday sitting in the shade and watching families enjoying the park. Little ones were taken to the outdoor showers and washed down when they got messy. What a great idea, every park should have outdoor showers....More

Walking around the waterfront is always enjoyable. Take a hat as the setting sun will be hot. You can bike ride around also - and enjoy seeing the differently coloured fish in seaside cages.

Promenade/park right at the waterfront. Well kept, clean, safe and the right place for a nice walk. Lots of locals use it too (some kids/youth are quite artistic). There are good places to sit. Also, The park is a great place for picking up seeds...More
