  • Had a lovely time here. This park is dog friendly and has the best views ever. A lot of animals to see and a huge area to relax and enjoy. There is also a cafe and ice-cream shop at the top which seem...  more »
  • This is a great place close to the city where you can walk, have a coffee or picnic... Lots of free parking... And I'd definitely go back...  more »
  • There was a sheep! It is full of New Zealand feeling. I went on a sunny weekend and there were a lot of people coming, but it was a big park, so I didn't feel crowded.

  • Awesome, BBQ area very popular during summer so best to get thier early to ensure a spot. Great for a walk to the top of One Tree Hill, better now that cars are no longer aloud to the top. Heaps of area's for the kids to run around, with food places near by if having a picnic. Very quiet and a great place to chill out on a summers evening.
  • I love this place. It is great for exercising - walking, running or cycling. Fantastic views of the city from the summit. Everyone can enjoy this place. Bring the kids & let them run off that extra energy or play in the playground. If you want to relax in the sun with friends, you can. It is also great for picnics or a coffee at the cafés there. It’s also fun to watch the archers at the archery club.
  • This is a great place to get together with friends and family there are even BBQ facilities supplier to the public which is awesome huge open grounds and operating far is located here... even on a busy day there is plenty of room to find space for yourself although there are easier is here it is best to pack a barbecue and a picnic basket of your own food let the kids just run around or explore One Tree Hill itself and a nice garden or just walk the extensive tracks that crisscross this large open park..
  • We go here almost every week. It is a great place for some exercise, a picnic, to see the farm animals. Always very clean and tidy, cafes are lovely, plenty of space for the kids to play, plenty of parking too.
  • I spent lots of my early childhood there. I think it is wonderful that we have a farm park right in the city. It gets really busy at the weekend. Obviously lots of other people enjoy the walks, the playground, the Observatory, the views, the proximity, the cafe, the free wood fired bbq's, the sheep and cows, and the trees as much as I do.
