Centennial Park Waterwheel
Located in Taradale's Centennial Park, this timber-built waterwheel replaces the original built for Mount St Mary Seminary before World War I. Connected to a small generator, it provided electric lighting for the brothers and priests.
The restored wheel was crafted by Parks Department carpenter Hans Hengst.
Supported by a timber frame, it was placed in the park in 1970.
Built by parks workshop 1990 JTH Napier City Council
