“A slice of farmland, inner city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

I love Cornwall Park. It is great for a leisurely walk, or a run; it's perfect for a picnic or sunbathing by yourself and reading a book. It's really beautiful and an escape from the city, within the city! Also, it's a good challenge to walk up the side of the mountain to the top, where you get great views of Auckland :)

“Quiet place in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We have visited Cornwall Park on so many occasions and I am not growing tired of it at all. Need a break from the hustle and bustle of city life? This is the place to be. Situated in the centre of the City, the park shields you from all the traffic noises. The trees give you a sense of being in the forest. Awesome place to be.

What a great park, lots of room for everyone. Had a yummy ice cream, but was a bit disappointed the restaurant wasn't open

“Huge and beautiful park in the heart of Auckland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Cornwall and One Tree Hill is one of the largest and most beautiful parks I have ever visited in Oceania. Even though it was the weekend and was packed with people it never felt crowded except for One Tree Hill. We started our visit by driving up One Tree Hill for stunning views of Auckland including Auckland tower and Rangitoto volcano. We then drove down and parked near the restaurant and bought some yummy gelatos before taking a leisurely walk around the park. Although it was nice and sunny the huge trees provided loads of shade perfect for picnics, barbecues or just lazing on the grass. There is even a farm in the park where you can see the ever present sheep and cattle. We spent half a day in Cornwall and barely explored a fraction of it. Will definitely return for repeat visits!

“One of the best parks in Auckland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Beautiful Gardens, open spaces, plenty of paths and hiking. Perfect for a run, a hike, a picnic, or a BBQ. One Tree Hill has amazing views of the City. In the spring you can catch the cherry blossoms in bloom, a beautiful site.
