Ngātokowaru Marae is the home of Ngāti Pareraukawa. It is nestled on the south bank of the Hokio Stream, about a kilometre west of Lake Horowhenua towards Te Moana-o-Raukawa. The whare tupuna, Ngātokowaru, was completed early in 1978 and opened by Ngāti Toa Rangatira in March 1978. The dining room, Pareunuora, has undergone several rebuilding stages since 1981. The new kitchen was completed in 2012. A new ablution block was completed in 2005. The original homestead section is south of the marae atea, and has the homestead, Te Patai, sited on it. The building was moved there from Levin, to house the Kohanga Reo, named Kahuitara, during the late 1980s and early 1990s. A double garage on the marae is used as a rangatahi room for our Te Huarahi o te Ora programme.
