“Go to the restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

The park is large and best viewed not on foot. But well worth a visit in the restaurant in the park. Food is delicious and service friendly. A good place to meet friends and enjoy lunch.

“A big park in the middle of a big city”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

I know this park appeals to many but if you prefer to be out in the bush, you'll probably see this park as just another boring inner city park. It's probably well suited to families as there's cattle and sheep grazing which struck me as 'different' given it's in the middle of a city. It's a bit of a climb to the top of the hill but the views are nice. Nothing special to me but I imagine the locals love it as I saw alot of people exercising in the area.

“Rural Retreat in the City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

As an Aucklander I probably take this beautiful parkland for granted. Hectares of green grass with sheep grazing, lovely stands of trees, flowering shrubs, beds of colourful flowers and of course the magnificient spring daffofils in spring. BBQs available to use and extensive areas to put down a rug for a picnic. Either drive up or walk to the summit and take in the wonderful views over the city. Children's playground near the Manukau Road entrance to the park with the Observatory close by. I take my elderly mother through there regularly to enjoy the vista. The restaurant/cafe within the park is also excellent for a coffee/ high tea or meal. Also an yummy ice cream kiosk attached which has so many flavours to choose from. A place suitable for everyone and of course great place to take a walk (or run).
