I often like to start here with tai chi at 10 am. And then I start wandering through the daffodil gardens around one tree hill to the summit and down the north face through the olive grove road and back past the creamery to the cafe park beside the mass of trees in flower. I do this once a week when I’m on vacation in a different country :)

This might not be an obvious tourist choice. Which is a shame. The park is beautiful abs beautifully maintained. The trees are magnificent. There are wonderful explanations of the Campbell bequest and the history of Auckland. As well as about the planting and the farms and ecology. Interesting both for adults and children.

From the park one can walk up One Tree Hill where there is a monument to Campbell and panoramic views all over the city and gulf.

Great place to relax, walk through the paddocks filled with sheep, cows, lambs and calves. Plenty of places to picnic, jog or just sit and read a book. There’s a cafe and ice cream shop if you get hungry and so many different types of native and imported trees and flowers to admire

Lovely walk or play with the kids and dog. There are two cafes to eat at one casual one bistro. You wouldn’t know you were in the city, sit under a big old tree to read a book or just relax or have a picnic with your family.

This is such a great park just on the outskirts of the city. There is plenty of grassy areas to walk and run around in. There is also a kids playground by the observatory. You have to walk up to the summit but there is parking close to it.
There are also a lot of other things to see around the park such as the rotunda or the myriad of trees lining the paths. There is also a cafe if you were getting pecking or want an indoor rest. There isn't a way to drive from the main entrance on Greenlane West to the playground area so you'd have to get out of the park and get in the other entrance.
It is a nice place to spend a few hours or so just being outside.

Thanks Acineto for the fantastic review! The kids playground area is in fact part of One Tree Hill Domain, our friendly neighbouring park, run by Auckland Council.

Although great in any season, Spring is a particularly perfect time to visit Cornwall Park, especially if you catch the cherry trees in full bloom. The wisteria arch provides a stunning lilac display as well as a gorgeous fragrance. They trees are magnificent and provide ample shade for a picnic. It is a serene and tranquil area for a walk, short or long, flat or steep! It's fun to see the lambs, sheep and cows in the fields, and spot the birdlife. The views across Auckland city are panoramic. There's a cafe and a bistro at which to quench your thirst or appetite. Public toilets are available as well as a barbecue area. The Huia Lodge Discovery Hub contains interesting and informative displays about the area and its history. There are many different parking areas but they do fill up. A wonderful natural area within the city.

This is a huge park with multiple entrances. It is open even on public holidays. We visited during the afternoon and it was nice just to take a stroll around, sit for some time and just gaze at the trees and expanse of greens . The park is well maintained

One of the most popular parks in Auckland, New Zealand especially during Springtime (September to November. You can do almost any activity here like biking, running, bird watching, etc. or choose to learn about sheep from the working farm. It has ample parking space around this humongous park. There are picnic tables and BBQ area at this park.

It's always been a fabulous place to visit and what has always amazed me is that it never seems crowded, even when there are lots of cars lining the avenue.
The park is just gorgeous, a peaceful domain, a refuge in a large busy city. Just a stroll through it, or part of it even, is enough to clear the mind and offer a sense of tranquility.
Yes, it's a great place to relax in and enjoy.

Beautiful serene space thats larger than you think. Delightful walk ways with a rural touch with sheep grazing. We packed a picnic and sat on one of the lovely slopes and enjoyed the serenity.
