Find out about what you can do at Lions Park, where it is, and how to request a booking.

Tucked in behind the dunes, you'll find this marine-themed, ship-shaped playground in the middle of the Petone Foreshore. Lions Park is named after the Petone Lions because of the ongoing support they have given the Park. It’s one of many parks that make up the Petone Foreshore.

You’ll find Lions Park on the Petone Foreshore, at the intersection of The Esplanade and Marine Parade, with a rear entrance near Jessie Street.
