What a view! The outlook is fantastic with views of the city and hauraki gulf. Great area for photos and a picnic near Mission Bay. Explorre around the park and check out the gun emplacements!

This spot gives you a great view of the harbour but you need a car to get there easily. You could walk up from the main road but its a steep hill. One of the past Prime Ministers is buried there. he was much revered for his simplicity and for creating the welfare state in NZ. You can also catch a glimpse of a genuine marae over the back paddock. They might even let you in if you're polite and ask nicely.

The drive from the city to Mission bay is very attractive, and the Savage memorial is well worth the small deviation involved. Lovely views

This is the perfect place in Auckland to enjoy a picnic with the family. The views are outstanding as the park is elevated above Tamaki Drive looking straight out to Rangitoto. Gorgeous on a summer day when the harbour is full of sailing boats. Lots of grass for the kids to run around on. There are no shops here so come prepared with everything you need. Last time I was up there I noticed there weren't that many rubbish bins - really helpful if you bring a bag and take your rubbish away with you. It's a beautiful spot in which to linger - take a camera!

great place to have a picnic and watch the boats in the harbour.
Easy access with parking too. Sometimes they have kites/festivals on here.
