This is an unusual little woodland area with twisted trees growing across the paths. Its only small so worth a quick look. Very mysterious looking.

Near the quadrant this is a pleasant place to stop. Even if you just look at the amazing trees that populate the small area. Kids will love it!

The fact that you can even rate this reserve seems ridiculous to me. What next lamp posts? Curb side weeds? It is a nice enough park but if you actually visit this with the intention of going here, you need your head checked. 2.711/5, it's nice if you stumble upon it, but don't be stupid and add it to a...

While on a walking tour making our way down from Albert Park and the University area our guide took us to Emily Place. This very small place on the side of a steep hill which has quite a lot of history attached to it. This is the location of the first church in Auckland, St. Paul's, back in 1843, what... More

This is a small triangular park with many tree branches that bend to the ground forcing you to bend as well to pass through, and a steep staircase to awaken all your muscles. Both elements will test your balance and physical ability and skills, but this park also has benches to let you rest and relax when you're done with... More

It is a park with unique features, Giant Trees Stumps, just at the surface of the ground, and the big branches are bending at every direction. So big and bent, the big branches are blocking the pathways. People have to bend when passing under theses trees and supporters need to stop the bending branches get worse. They are located in...

We stayed at the Jucy hotel. The reserve is filled with massive nz Christmas trees ... i forget the real name ... they flower red at Christmas time. The stair case is challenging. There is a monument with a typo ... see if you can find it. This is your challenge. Add a review if you find it. This is... More
