Lonely Planet review

The pick of New Plymouth's parks, Pukekura has 49 hectares of gardens, playgrounds, trails, streams, waterfalls, ponds and display houses. Rowboats (per half-hour $10, December and January only) meander across the main lake (full of arm-sized eels), next to which the Tea House serves light meals. The technicoloured Festival of Lights here draws the summer crowds, as does the classically English cricket oval.
