You'll find free kerbside parking a few minutes away on Heriot Drive, Wi Neera Drive and Norrie Street. Car parks are free for up to two hours, but we'd hate for you to get a ticket so please make sure you check all the signs as parking is monitored. Porirua train station is only a five-minute walk.
