“Cornwall Park is an expansive parkland in Epsom near the heart of Auckland, New Zealand, surrounding the park containing Maungakiekie pa or the hill of One Tree Hill. The two independent parks form one large park of 670 acres (270 hectares). The Park has centuries-old heritage sites, wide-open spaces, tree lined avenues and walks, places of peace and tranquility in a large city, sports grounds including tennis and bowls and a working farm for the education of city children. John Logan Campbell, Auckland resident since 1840 and, at the time of this gift, mayor, gave the park's 230 acres to a private trust on 10 June 1901. The adjoining Park Maungakiekie had been purchased by the national government in 1845 and since 2012 belongs to Ngā Mana Whenua o Tāmaki Makaurau Collective.[1] Campbell chose to present the deeds the following day to the visiting heir to the throne, the Duke of Cornwall and York later George V asking his consent for it to be named Cornwall Park in honour of the Duke.[2] A few weeks later the adjoining Alexandra Park was named in honour of the Duke's mother.[3]”

“Albert Park is one of Auckland’s best parks. Its central location in the heart of the city, together with its long history and distinctive character, have earned it a special place in the hearts of Aucklanders and made it an important destination for visitors. At one corner of the park is the Auckland City Art Gallery and gardens, and on the other side is the original park-keepers cottage which is now a museum of memorabilia. It's the perfect place for a lunchtime stroll and somewhere to eat your lunch on a lovely sunny day.”

The ranges and surrounding areas were traditionally known to local Māori as Te Wao Nui o Tiriwa. ”

“Grab a coffee and take a morning to discover this lovely natural occurring spring. The bridge is a great place to see the eels, but beware of the ducks and geese as they are confident in approaching you for food! There is currently a plan in place to rehome a lot of these geese as they have become too numerous but this doesn't detract from a lovely walk. Just dont wear nice shoes and watch where you step!”

“Western Springs is a wildlife sanctuary surrounding a natural spring-fed lake, one of Auckland's early water supplies. The park is surrounded by a cluster of major nearby attractions including the Auckland Zoo, Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT), the Chamberlain Park Golf Course and the Western Springs stadium. Amenities and activities BBQ Drinking fountains Fishing Fishing for eels is strictly prohibited. The long-finned eel, which is found only in New Zealand, has recently been classified by the Department of Conservation as 'in gradual decline', which means it is likely to be extinct within 50 years. Eel populations are particularly vulnerable because eels take a long time to grow to their potential two metres (usually only between 1cm and 2cm per year) and female eels only spawn once before they die and it can be up to 80 years old before they do so. Anyone illegally fishing in the lake may put native eels at risk. According to Part 20 of the Auckland City Consolidated Bylaw (1998), it is illegal to kill or injure any animal in a public place, including lakes. Offenders can be fined up to $500. Other species that could be affected by the illegal fishing include tench, perch, catfish, goldfish, koi and grasscarp. Contact us if you see anyone fishing in the lake. Picnic tables Playground The Fukuoka Garden This traditional Japanese garden with a waterfall, pond and tea pavilion was opened in July 2017. It is located near the entrance to the park from the Auckland Zoo car park off Motions Road. The garden is free to the public and is open from 10am to 5.30pm in winter and 10am to 6.30pm in summer (during daylight saving). Walks You can explore the park by means of a well-developed network of footpaths that includes boardwalks through the wetlands and a walking track. Wildlife The lake is a refuge for the native orea (eel), who can be seen trailing the swans and ducks. Along with the birds, the orea are tame and can be coaxed to take food. The eels are an original part of the cultural and ecological heritage of Western Springs Lake - a fact that is reflected in the lake's Māori name 'Te Wai Orea', which means 'waters of the eel'. Around the shores and wetlands, wild fowl including native Pukeko, Teal, Australian Coot and Shovelers can be freely viewed amongst regenerating native plants, wide-open lawns, gardens, water gardens and water lilies”
