Eden Garden, Epsom

4.1
#33 of 87 in Parks in Auckland Region
Find yourself surrounded by colorful blossoms and fragrant blooms at Eden Garden, a 2.2 hectare (5.5 acre) award-winning garden. Stroll the paths to view its many plant collections including vireyas, camellias, bromeliads, perennials, and native New Zealand species. Thanks to the varying seasonality, you'll always find something in bloom here, plus waterfalls, rock formations, and plenty of resident native birds--all backed by views of the city and harbor. The garden was constructed at the site of an abandoned quarry, completed 45 years after a group of volunteers committed to doing so. Of particular mention is the its collection of vireya rhododendrons, which flower throughout the year.

    A nice getaway in the heart of Auckland. Small at entry but there is a large area to explore inside the garden. A cafe is also available. Good service and good coffee.  more »

    I was thinking on the way back to Brive you road (the road climbed in) from the top of Mt Eden, come down and go to the garden of Eden, but unfortunately, "down the mountain again, Amana Avenue side into Eden gardens cannot" look like notes, was heartbroken. Opening times summer and winter 9:00 ~ is 16:00.
