Naumai Park

Naumai Park, Hawera @insertnamehere26

Formerly known as the Horse Paddock, Yarrow Park, Miro Park and East End Park, it was officially named Naumai Park in 1926. The glorious park is a conversion of a dump site by devoted volunteers in the 1920s. Three lakes were part of the original plan, however there are now two lakes. Significant features include:

  • 1927 kauri grove and native plant collection
  • Lakes and ducks makes for a great walk with children
  • Stone walls and waterfall operating through a recirculating pump in the upper lake,
  • Summerhouse with murals
  • Original Hawera Hospital ornamental gates donated to the park in 1932
  • A ‘goblin’s park with its nooks and crannies invoking imaginative natural settings for goblins

In the heat of summer, it is a popular place for picnics with its shady corners.  The park is a venue for concerts and public events. The film Predicament based on the book by Hawera author Ronald Hugh Morrieson used the park as a scene location.
