Spa Park walking track signage.  A nice walk is from Spa Park to Huka Falls all along the clear-blue Waikato River.

A view of the area where the hot water from the hot stream mingles with the water of the Waikato River.  Very social spot.

This is the Spa Park gate which gets locked when the sign says so--it changes with the season.  If you come near closing time, park here and walk the extra 5 minutes so you don't get locked in for the night, having to pay an after-hours release fee if you want out.
