This is a park, with large rose plantings, and footpaths to walk on, while enjoying great views over the Waitemata harbor. The park is elevated, about 100 feet above sea level.

Enjoyed the time there but not really my thing. Still, very beautiful and fragrant. It was a nice day so that helped.

This free rose garden was larger than we expected. Though many were just past their prime,there were quite a few worth photographing. Do be sure to walk up the store into the park. I don't know what kind, but there is a GIANT tree there. Very spread out.

We visited these beautiful rose gardens after a good sleep. Thus it was a fresh day with a fresh body and mind to start our journey in New Zealand. The gardens were very well laid out with diverse colorful bloomed roses for which my wife could not stand the temptation to make a lot photo shots here. The environment was very relax and we saw also some people sitting and reading some books in the gardens. We could also have a very awesome view on the Auckland's harbor. Thus, the gardens were really worthy to visit .......
