Almost impossible to find a park anywhere! This place definitely needs some work as many shops have moved or closed down over the years. I think there is a lot of wasted potential here, it just needs a revamp! There are a few nice cafes, and plenty of restaurants along the strand where you can eat and enjoy the view.
Downtown Tauranga has really gone downhill since they did away with the free parking, most of the decent shops have moved away or closed down. There are still a couple good stores around, but i'd much rather go to the likes of fraser cove shopping centre or the lakes and not have to pay for parking, and have a much better selection of stores.
