About this space
The Te Aroha Domain is Te Aroha's premier park. The township grew around the Te Aroha Domain and its hot springs. In its heyday as a Spa Town in the 1890s –1910s, Te Aroha was one of the most popular resort destinations in New Zealand. Without the springs and the spa built to take advantage of them, the town would not have developed as it did.
The Te Aroha Domain is currently the most intact Edwardian spa in New Zealand. While it has lost many of its original buildings, it still retains more than any other former spa. A lot of work has gone into the Domain in the last few years, with work done to restore original features such as the lakelets and the footpool, helping to revive the Edwardian character that is such a large part of the town's history.
