Owner description: This lovely urban park offers an escape from the city hustle and bustle with oak tree-lined roads, winding paths and grazing sheep and cattle.

Yes I live nearby, but whenever I have overseas guests I always take them for a drive through this amazing park and to the top of One Tree Hill to see the expansive views of Auckland City, the other volcanoes and get a sense of the City.Something for everyone in this impressive green space.

My favourite place in Auckland. If you're feeling the city hemming you in, go to Cornwall park for a breather. Cycling through is the best (especially early Spring when the daffidols bloom), or relaxing under a tree in summer with a picnic - spacious and wonderful!!

We are so lucky to have this beautiful park close to where we live. I often bike with my family around the park in the weekend. In summer they have live music, you can take a picnic and bbq facilities are provided, or you can stop for an ice cream or coffee at the restaurant. We have taken many overseas guests for a drive here as well including up to the top of One Tree Hill where you have views of both the Manukau and Waitemata harbours.

Make sure you also drive to the top where there is a monument and expansive views over Auckland. There is also an old house halfway up, which was the house of the original owner of the land before he gifted it to the city of Auckland. His house is now an attraction with information and displays inside. It is located near a cafe.

Auckland is very lucky that Cornwall Park was gifted to the people of Auckland so many years ago. It is the ideal place to go for a run,walk or just relax and people watch. It is great to see that it is really enjoyed by hundreds - especially in the weekends. There are so many little areas scattered around the park like the band rotunda area, huge big flat grass area that seems to be a particular favourite for groups and family picnics. I can not rate this park highly enough. I haven;t even mentioned the cattle and sheep etc. The children's playground by the conservatory is well used every day and the little train is loved by small and big kids as the big kids get to push the train around while the little kids have a ride. Some supervision is needed though. All in all a great place to visit
