Do it online




Public barbecues in Tauranga are free to use. You can't book the barbecues, it's first-in-first-served. 

They are operated by push button, and are cleaned once a week in the winter and twice a week in summer.

Most of the BBQs are electric but if the BBQ is gas, they are ignited by holding the start button for a minimum of six seconds. If it doesn't light after six seconds, continue to hold the button in until it lights.

You can take your own gas barbecue to any park or reserve or foreshore - but open fires are NOT permitted on reserves.
