Reviewed 1 February 2014

There's the Early Settlers Museum, beach (popular for dogs to run along), and a great playground for kids plus sandhills to play in. It's exposed and windy on a windy day but on a sunny day a great place to take the kids or go for a walk. Petone is also a great shopping destination with most of the shops in the main street called Jackson Street.

Had a very relaxing walk along the foreshore. Lovely views back to Wellington City. The children`s park & play area was clean & tidy with well maintained equipment.

It is a great walk beside the sea with the ever changing view of the harbour. Wellington city in the distance is spectacular. Even if the weather is blustery it is still a good place to visit as there is interesting art works along the way & the sea is a little wild.

We grabbed a take-away lunch and parked on the foreshore looking across the Wellington Harbour on a sunny Saturday. The beach is a driftwood gatherers delight and walkways just made for those wanting to walk or jog away an hour or so. Peaceful and relaxing for others.

This is an area that we frequent often for walking. Compared to other foreshores and walks around NZ and the world Petone foreshore comes out at the bottom of the heap. It needs an injection of capital to provide some facilities but more importantly it needs a commitment by the local Council to keep[ it clean, free from rubbish and ensure that the beach is kept clean after storms and major outflows from nearby Hutt river. At low tide it stinks
