It’s been a year living back in Auckland and one of things we love doing as a family is going to check out the parks here. There are many more that we haven’t been to, but these are my favourites.
The reserve itself is like your standard field with a playground.
Where this place shines is the walk from Roberta reserve through Tahuna Torea Nature Reserve. The walk is great for kids and the views are spectacular.
Another park with an epic playground
The park shares it’s surroundings with the Eastern Suburbs football team with large football fields directly behind it. The clubrooms are a good size with takeaway food, coffee and beers. Also a huge box of Duplo for your kids. Kohimarama is within walking distance so are cafe’s and a good fish and chip shop.
one of the few places you can see all of Auckland on a clear day. It’s got everything really, sheep, trees, cafe’s and humour. See below
Very popular with wedding photographers too
Tucked away in the student part of Auckland City is Albert Park

You will never know this place exists unless someone tells you about it. Another east Auckland gem (it’s my neck of the woods, so I’m biased)
Head out to Pakuranga and find Bramley Drive. Park up and take a stroll along the water. Directly across the water is Point England. As it’s in an estuary the water is calm and super clear
Its features a Snakes and Ladders park for the little ones.
Let me know if I should visit others around Auckland
Nick's Dutch wife is mostly concerned about the quality of NZ chocolate and cheese.Hope we don't disappoint.
