Spread over 425 acres, the Cornwall Park is symbolic of New Zealand’s history, flora, fauna and farm culture. It’s located in the heart of Auckland and offers many activities. One can go for a casual stroll with loved ones in the lush green surroundings of the trails and then enjoy a cup of coffee or a meal from its eateries, get together with friends and family over barbeque, explore the cattle on the farm and other horticulture activities.
Maungakiekie, or the One Tree Hill, is the epicentre of Cornwall Park. It stands for friendship and unity between Maori and non-Maori settlers, known as the Pakeha in the Maori dialect. Sir John Logan Campbell donated the land that Cornwall Park is built on to a private trust that would ensure the land would only be used for the public's enjoyment. He is buried beneath the obelisk built to signify friendship between the Maori and the European settlers. From visiting the historic Acacia cottage built in the 1800s to playing sports in the clubs - this place is a popular spot for all age groups with varied interests. Exercising, doing yoga while basking in stillness and connecting to Mother Nature with birds chirping in the background is nothing short of eternal bliss.
