The Tom Parker Fountain is located on Napiers Marine Parade.
If you are in Napier in the evening, this fountain is a must see. From 8pm til midnight the fountain comes to life with changes of light and pressure. It really is something magical. A rainbow of colours are shown in sequence. Firey reds to deep blues shoot up into the night sky giving an impressive, constantly changing display.
Built in 1936 from funds donated by Tom Parker, a local merchant. Owned by the Napier City council this is one of most spectacular water fountains in New Zealand - a real piece of Art Deco history. The fountain is regularly featured in art deco period-style photos.
Address: Cnr Marine Parade and Browning Street, Napier.
Hours: Operational without lights in daylight hours. Then display comes alive with lights and high pressure jets from 8pm - Midnight
