Nature / Park
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".

  • Myers Park is a small park, which connects St Kevin completo Arcade to the main street. It is a must in the city tour. It was not as impressive as Albert Park, but is very nice and has games for kids,

  • Not a touristic spot but more of a quiet place to relax a few hours. If you have limited time in Auckland then dont bother but if you have more time to appreciate then its a nice place to read a book,...  more »

  • A fantastic place to go with kids during the day. The playground is fun, with something for all ages, and the grounds and restrooms are well kept.
  • Nice small park in the middle of the city. Good place to have your lunch break, catch some sun, bring your children or just walk though from the Civic to St Kevin's Arcade.
  • I've never seen a park like this before! It's long and narrow, and surrounded with tall buildings. It's pretty and I love the unique feel to it 😊
  • Nice little park with a newish, colourful playground. Suitable for toddlers and slightly older kids alike. Equipment includes small slides, bigger slides, wobbly bridge, several small animals to ride on, merry go round, caterpillar to ride on, swings and a swinging basket-thing. My son loves to play and hide in the little hollow pumpkin. Some shade provided by big metal flowers and good picnic spots under trees nearby.
  • Not as creepy as it used to be. Good swings in the new playground. Toilets are still gross though
