Places to visit in New Plymouth
Egmont National Park
The snow-capped cone of Taranaki Maunga lures visitors who appreciate geological phenomena. Apart from one small bump - a subsidiary vent called Fantham's Peak - the mountain's cone is beautifully symmetrical. Climbing to the summit is achievable for experienced hikers in all seasons – although winter is more difficult and not recommended– and is best done with a guide. The best months to attempt the summit climb is January through to April.
Pukekura Park is an idyllic, inner-city botanical wonder that was first opened in 1876. Once swamp land, the 52-hectare park is both a garden and a public recreation ground. The park includes two lakes, children's playgrounds, a cricket ground, fernery and display houses, a tea house , fountain and waterfall, historic band rotunda, and an entertainment venue - the Bowl of Brooklands. Every summer Pukekura Park hosts the spectacular TSB Festival of Lights. During December and January, hundreds of lighting displays turn the park into a huge, illuminated fantasyland.
