    Nice quiet trip
    This is a peaceful place, good sense of countryside. We visited here on our first day in Auckland. The scenery is really great -- very green and hilly. The obelisk is a good point to direct your walk to.

    A good workout
    Long climb up! I think there is only one way in, through Olive Grove. Get to see sheep along the way. Cool weather and strong winds in early November, saw many locals jogging up and tourists taking the climb.

    Good to go for walks and picnic family outing
    The park is abundant with greenery, providing an excellent route for physical activity. You can immerse yourself in nature and observe some sheep among other things. The playground is decent but could use more diversity. The skateboard track is quite disappointing, seemingly designed for tyres rather than skateboard wheels. However, the park’s vastness could keep you occupied for several hours. A leisurely stroll around the park and up the hill to take in the views could easily take up to 2 hours.

    Must do
    Walked up here with our 16 and 9 yr old on a recent stay in Auckland. 9 yr old commented thanks for talking me in to this idea I never would have thought it’d be so pretty. Awesome walk, dog friendly and definitely the prettiest part of Auckland I’ve visited so far :)

The car parks are safe but there is about 30 car break ins a month if not more .It is safer to take all valuables like cameras ,PASSPORTS and other important items with you instead of leaving them ,Two people recently visited the mountain before departing for home over seas there passports were taken so be careful . Otherwise it is a wonderful place ..

This park is adjacent to Cornwall Park so it's best to visit both on the same day. It's a volcanic peak where you can view the city of Auckland. On the summit of the hill you can see an obelisk with a bronze statue of a Maori warrior.

We walked up one tree hill it was lovely, only took about 20mins to get to the top. Amazing 360 views of Auckland city. There are a few paths through the long grass and over the paddocks that we followed on the way down. There us a cafe and a playground in Cornwall park as well.
A great free activity to do with it without kids.

We came here 3 years ago but brought friends with us this time. You use to be able to drive to the top but now it’s a walk only to the top site. Sadly, our one friend couldn’t walk that far. There is a historical plaque about half way up the hill and several at the top of the hill. Make sure you read these signs to learn about the history of this area. Great Auckland views from the top of the hill.

This hill is a must for First timers in Auckland. Being one of the highest point, this lookout offers 360 degree views of entire Auckland.

There are plenty of parking on the hill. The one nearest the peak is about 10 minutes walk.

The hill has beautiful park and trees all over. You can have a stroll, bring a picnic mat and sit under tree and enjoy a book or just merely relax and feel the nature. You can bring a bike or scooter as well.

Have a drinking bottle handy so you can relenosh your water on nearby drinking fountains too.
