Cornwall Park Tours and Activities

Cornwall Park
A large, popular green space in the Auckland suburb of Epsom, Cornwall Park is a great option for a day of outdoor fun. The park houses restaurants and cultural attractions, and, as the site of a pre-European Maori settlement, is also archaeologically significant. 

The Basics
Cornwall Park has marked trails, barbecue and picnic facilities, and plenty of space for casual sports. More than just a green space, the park is home to a working farm and Auckland’s oldest surviving wooden building, Acacia Cottage. Find out about all the natural and cultural attractions at the park’s information center, Huia Lodge, an early 19th-century heritage building that itself is worthy of a visit. 

It’s easy to visit Cornwall Park independently. As it’s right next to One Tree Hill, many visitors combine a stroll in the park with a climb to the top of the hill for panoramic city views. Guided park walks, which include the site’s Maori archaeological remains, can be arranged on-site. Guided tours are not allowed inside the park. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • There are three food outlets within the park: Cornwall Park Bistro, Cornwall Park Café, and the Creamery.
  • Visitors can join the 3-mile (5-kilometer) park run that departs from the Band Rotunda every Saturday morning. 
  • Cornwall Park is on the 10-mile (16-kilometer) coast-to-coast walking route between Waitemata and Manukau harbors.

How to Get There
Free car parking is available to visitors with their own vehicles. The closest train stations are Greenlane (a 15-minute walk along Green Lane West) and Remuera Road (a 10-minute walk along Market Road). No bus runs directly to the park, but buses that travel along Manukau Road, Green Lane West, and Great South Road will get you close. 

When to Get There
Cornwall Park is open during the daylight hours, with varying opening times depending on the season. Its popularity with Aucklanders means it’s busiest at weekends. Seasonal events are held throughout the year, particularly in summer, with entertainment for kids and free outdoor concerts.

Tour Auckland’s Volcanoes 
Auckland is a city of visible volcanoes—around 50, in fact—and Cornwall Park is located at the foot of one of them (One Tree Hill, or Maungakiekie). Travelers interested in seeing and exploring Auckland’s other volcanoes have plenty of options: kayaking around Mount Rangitoto in the harbor, climbing One Tree Hill and Mount Eden in the central city area, or visiting the Auckland War Memorial Museum at the top of Pukekawa.
