Pukekura Park, New Plymouth


  • Location: City Centre, New Plymouth. There are several car parks located around the Park itself, or walk in from the city centre.

The park is always alive with something happening – the TSB Festival of Lights lights up the park between December and February each year and sitting adjacent to the park is Brooklands garden estate, where you’ll find Brooklands Zoo and where the amazing WOMAD festival is held each March – the main stage being the stunning TSB Bowl.
  • Notes: Toilets located in several spots throughout the park, it’s Buggy and wheelchair friendly.
