Mair Park s a historic park in Whangarei, New Zealand. It is named for Robert Mair who donated the land from his estate to the city in 1914. The park includes access to the Hatea River. Access to the park is off Rurumoki Street.[1] A bridge leads over the river and connects to walking paths in the Parihaka Scenic Reserve.[2] The park includes an orienteering course and a memorial cairn to Mair, one of the city's pioneers.[3] Land adjacent to the park including an island on the river have been gifted to the city in 2018.[4]
