Myers Park, Auckland
Categories: Nature & Parks
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".For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Auckland holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Myers Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

This is a great little walk between K Road and the city - if a bit steep in parts going up - but is quite refreshing and away from the hustle and bustle. If you don't like hills, catch a bus to k Road... read more »
It's a nice park but quite empty in terms of passer-by's. Can be unsafe esp in the dark. Mainly used as a shortcut, but in my personaly opinion, it's safer to avoid.

从位于圣凯文拱廊的二手精品店开始，沿楼梯向下便是Myers Park的入口了。新西兰的天气一路上给了我们太多的惊喜，机场刚出来时还是一股山雨欲来风满楼的架势，没想到踏入Myers Park时已经骄阳高挂。我们沐浴在早晨的气息中，听着耳畔的鸟叫声，万分享受。公园的尽头有亲子乐园，宝贝们无一不是由爸爸带着玩儿，全然不见妈妈们的身影。
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.
Could be dodge..but really good place to chill out
