PotW – Marine Parade, Napier

Marine Parade, Napier
This play area has some amazing features – like the awesome bike area, fenced and with road markings – and some stranger ones, like a lot of seemingly unclimbable structures that look like they should be climbed. The playground is in multiple sections, intended for various age groups. Each section is individually fenced and gated.
There is parking nearby, although it can get quite tight on a sunny day in the school holidays. The lack of large trees is made up for with some areas being under shade sails. Toilets are at one end of the playground area, but there are only a couple, so wait times vary.
Bring your bike / the bike trailer for the littlies and enjoy a cruise along the awesome shared path between the road and the beach, including some free water play areas near the skate park that has replaced Marine Land.
