Napier’s Marine Parade has one of the most fascinating histories of any waterfront location in New Zealand.   Join Hawke’s Bay historian Michael Fowler for a stroll along Marine Parade to explore its history from 1860 to the present day. He will pick out Art Deco features as well as pointing out little known facts from over ten years research about what has become Napier’s playground.

The 1931 Hawke’s Bay’s earthquake’s impact on the waterfront, The Soundshell, Pania of the Reef, Tom Parker Fountain, Colonnade, Sea wall, sunken gardens and many more features will be explored in detail.

Please bring comfortable shoes, sunscreen and a sunhat!  The walk is around 3 km in total.
