This park was a must-see during our first visit to Auckland this year. As a running enthusiast, it was both challenging and rewarding to climb to its peak.

Great way to see the city sights is to take a Toru Tour. This took us here and the gardens and scenery were all beautiful. Fantastic photo opportunities.

Cornwall Park is one of the many public domains maintained by the Auckland Council. The best part is that it has free BBQ facilities - on a first come first serve basis. I've been there a couple of times to play touch rugby with my friends... Wonderfully maintained lawns, free BBQ making facilities..what else do you need.. Thanks Auckland Council

Beautiful, peaceful, and tranquil. Great for morning or afternoon walks. In addition, getting to see sheeps, cows and horses in all their glory is definitely a bonus!

I used to walk a friend's dog when she was at work for many years and always enjoyed the Park. Plenty of parking in the bottom of the park and gentle slopes give way to steep slopes and paths up to the Volcanic top. There are fields with cattle or sheep to add to the pleasure and the native trees,... More

On a sunny weekend Cornwall Park is a must. You may want to take a picnic lunch along with a ball or frisbee also. Lying back under the trees is simply superb!
