Myers Park, Auckland

(3.7/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
Myers Park is a narrow park in central Auckland, New Zealand, running parallel to the upper part of Queen Street. It is characterised by steep, grassed slopes and canopied with a mixture of large exotic and native trees, including an alley of large palm trees.A playground, benches and various artworks (including a marble copy of Michelangelo's sitting Moses statue) are features of the park. Paths cross the park connecting to Queen Street, K Road, Grey's Avenue and Aotea Square.Opened in 1915 Myers Park is sometimes referred to as Auckland's oldest park which is incorrect as several parks predate it; the Auckland Domain 1842, Western Park 1875, Albert Park 1884, Victoria Park 1905, Point Erin Park 1911 and Parnell Park 1913 (now Dove-Myer Robinson Park).HistoryRunning downhill from the northern slope of the Karangahape ridge, the park was formed in 1914-15 out of an overgrown gully facing towards the Waitemata Harbour.The gully was the start of the Waihorotiu Stream, also known as the 'Queen Street River'. As it followed the route of Queen Street below Victoria Street the open stream became polluted, its lower reaches being little more than an open sewer. Several modifications were made, in the 1870s the City Engineer Mr Ligar tried to stabilise the crumbling earth banks by creating wooden barrier walls resulting it ir being referred to as the "Ligar Canal".

  • Well wooded, good playground for children. Small park, near from Auckland CBD, but there are parks more beautiful than that. Good place for a walk or sitting on the grass with friends. 
  • I love this place! One of my favorites in Auckland, this park is wonderful and charming. With a planting of Roses of all colors and species, as well as a beautiful view of the Sky tower and Auckland harbour.

  • Excellent park in the Central part of the city. Has a good children's play area. Well laid out and set up. Easy access from multiple entry/exit points for the park. Upgrading continuing still.

  • Nice Park in auckland cbd however it's known to be a bit 'dodgy'
  • Daytime it's a nice spot if you have very young children the playground is suited to toddlers.
  • Myers parks is a fantastic inner city park. There are public toilets, green space, trees and a playground. It is a great escape from the rush of inner city living.
  • A hidden gem in the heart of Auckland CBD. Great place to spend the weekend if you are at the downtown.
  • My son likes it there
