“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

I never knew this place existed, all these years I lived in Auckland! It's STUNNING! Easy to get to, especially from Mission Bay, an incredible view, perfect in the sunshine and the flowers are just beautiful. Great place to fly kites too.

“A Pleasant Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

An easy access Auckland waterfront family friendly park. Good views of the inner Waitemata Harbour including Rangitoto Island, the volcano that looks like a volcano. There are military gun emplacements from the war days. The monument, garden area, and pool area are nice, but tend to be very busy. This is a sunny day visit. Your time spent at this site will depend on whether you are their for a look, or whether you want to make a day of it with a pick-nick.

“Good view from the top”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

You can get a nice view of Auckland harbour from the hill side. There is a flower garden and small pool in front of the monument (good photograph spot for reflection of the monument if noone else is around). The place is somewhat packed when I was there with load of tourist bus coming in every 5 mins or so. There are hidden gun battery housing (no gun) on the right hand side behind the trees (if you standing on the grassy hill side looking at Auckland).

“Don't miss this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

This is a must-see in the Auckland area. The park is amazingly beautiful. We were there in February, late summer, and the flowers were still beautiful. Great views, great place to relax for hours or just a quick stop while enroute. Be sure to stop in for some fun and photos. Views to the city (auckland), the volcano, the islands, across the bay to Devonport, etc. I'll go back and stay all day next time.
