    Parakai Springs

    Excellent day, the main pool was a confidence builder for my 6yr old - by the end of the day she was confident in trying the swimming lessons she has had and was paddling to the deeper end. The slide was a real bonus and throughly enjoyed - the catch pool not too deep or scary. A downpour came over while we were there but with the option of a hotter inside pool we could still enjoy the day and then moved outside again when it had passed. Overall, enjoyed the day, the only difficuty being was trying to get her out of the water.
