Join a number of locals for a stroll, jog, or picnic at Cornwall Park, one of Auckland's biggest and most popular outdoor areas.

In addition to lush greenery, the park offers facilities for various activities, such as tennis, cricket, rugby, cycling, or archery. With a peaceful atmosphere and more than 20 resident bird species, the park is also heaven for bird-watchers. The park is open every day from morning to dusk and there is no admission fee.

  • Awesome viewpoint, nice stop within the coast to coast hike, which is recomandable! Often used for exercising, but the buildings nearby are also rentable for marriages!
  • Such a wonderful and beautiful park. Really shows the Beaty of New Zealand. Nice big open fields. Nice walks in forests. Sheep, playgrounds and a big hill. This place has everything.
  • One of the few great local open spaces to walk, explore and exercise in a farm in the middle of the city. Popular walk around and up to top of Maunkiekie or just wandering around the parks.
  • Beautiful park to wander around in! When you walk on to if the one tree hill, you get this magnificent 360° view over all of Auckland + you get to share your walk with the sheep that she walking all around. Prefect get away for a morning or afternoon
  • The best park around. Enjoyed star show in the Observatory, had mystic night walk with my friend among giant trees. It's great place to escape from hectic city life to recharge and breathe fresh air. Nice spot for family weekend BBQ or romantic date on the top of the hill overlooking busy auckland. Creamery shop offers delish Alpress coffee and tasty deserts
