Cornwall Park is a great place for a walk. There are fantastic views from the top. It is also a great place for a family picnic and fun day. There is loads of space to play football or cricket. They also serve high teas in the tea house which is lovely for a special treat.

We ran around and up to the top from Ibis Ellerslie, in under an hour. Probably would take as long to walk with the speed we ran... A lovely place in the middle of the city, great views, friendly people

A beautiful place to walk and enjoy. The walks vary from quite strenuous by going up One Tree Hill to easy by walking around it. The volcanic craters and the history of the area make it a worthwhile visit. Great place to walk your dog they are all on leads do do not impact on non dog owners. Friendly family... More

A large inner city park, where you can truly forget you are in the city. Stroll on the flat paths, or be energetic and climb up One Tree Hill ( though there is no tree there currently). Bar b que area, children's playground, wide open spaces, and a working sheep farm all provide a great place to relax and enjoy... More

This place is often very busy so it pays to make a reservation for High Tea. Choose to sit in the high backed seats and feel like the clock has turned back. It's always nice to take a walk over the park that was donated to the city in early times. Don't forget to take a look in the little... More

Visit the park on a Saturday and enjoy several games of cricket going on all around the park. A very pretty cafe on the edge of the park serves lovely coffee and snacks

I walk here quite regularly, but it is also a great place to drive around, or have a barbeque (barbeques are already dotted around the park for people to use for free) or just to have a picnic. There is a restaurant here as well where you can have a full meal, a snack or even high tea.

Cornwall Park has a country atmosphere within the city of Auckland. It has areas where you can walk among sheep, and lambs in spring. There is a road up to the top of the hill which is one of the best look outs for free in Auckland. On a fine day you can see over the majority of the city.

What a beautiful park. Well worth walking or driving to the summit of one tree hill (an ancient volcano). Sheep in the middle of the city. That's amazing.

To be in the middle of the city and feel like you are on a farm in the country and not to mention the views of the city. Amazing
