  • I always remember the first time I went to Auckland more than 2 years ago and one of the first places I met was here. With that impressive view of the city. It is like a secret place you feel so great once you are there after the escalator to heaven that's the way I call it because you really feel that once you are there. Beautiful. Perfect place to sunset or sunrise time .
  • Great area to visit. Plenty of parking and clean public bathrooms. Memorial is very beautiful and offers views to the city and Rangitoto. Lots of green pastures for spending time with the family. Keep in mind the gates close at 630pm.
  • Nice gardens to walk around. Great view of the Waitamata Harbour. Washroom facilities available.
  • Beautiful gardens, great views, public bathrooms are pretty clean. However, one of the lion fountains on the side of the garden does not work.
  • Wonderful place, beautiful view of Sky tower and Harbour bridge and on the other side, breath taking view of Rangitoto island. Amazing place to hangout with friends and family.
