I live near the park and enjoy visiting whenever I can. It does get very busy on weekends and because you have to have a car to get there parking and driving through can be a hassle. Having said that, once you start exploring, you can get away from the road and the crowd. Go to the top of One Tree Hill (the tree has gone now!) and get a view of most of central Auckland. Visit the volcanic crater and see some of the kumara pits that are the last remnants of the Maori pah that once occupied this area. Overseas visitors will love seeing the sheep and cattle - take lots of photos, but mind your feet! The playground has a great flying fox. There's a cafe, lots of photo opportunities, chickens, and informative posters with maps etc. If you have access to a bike this is a very nice way to get around. Overall, this is a nice park and a must-see for visitors to Auckland.
