“On the side of a hill.”
Review of Tiffen Park

Tiffen Park
Ranked #54 of 78 things to do in Napier
Attraction details
Reviewed 27 September 2015

It did seem to be a strange yet steep park on the side of a hill. Sadly we visited it on a grey and dismal day. However, on a sunny and clear day the views from different stages of the climb to the top and from the top of the park would be spectacular.

If you're into checking out every single park in a town, then of course you have to visit Tiffen Park! The entrance is right by the Municipal Theatre and probably the best part about the park is the gorgeous art deco entranceway framing it. Very pretty! The park itself is completely on a steep hillside, with little trails going parallel along it. Not elderly or disabled proof as it can be quite steep with steps. Very shady and lovely plants - natural dirt trails. Could probably get quite muddy in winter, so would leave to summer weather. Sandwiched between some houses above and the town below, rather odd place, but I still like it. It's quirky!

Nice enough, but nor the view over the city that anyone would expect. I hope they don't cut down the trees but they get in the way !

Quite a steep but short climb above Tennyson St. Great views over a lot of Napier CBD and to the ocean. Worth the 10 minutes going each way. Hidden treasure

I passed though the pleasing entrance to this quaintly named park wondering if afternoon refreshment was on offer. No tiffen was available that I could see but a dog may well enjoy a zig-zag up or down the hill.
