Just Beautiful
Jul 2020
My lovely wife and a friend of ours went to Totara Park for a picnic on the weekend. There are plenty of picnic tables next to the carpark in Wairere Avenue. The trails around the park and the adjacent Botanic Gardens are well maintained, and even after rain, are pretty dry. Some of the trails wind around the lovely creek and give the place an almost tropical rainforest feel. The paths higher up are over the fields and have views which are simply stunning. Well worth enjoying.

Amazing Leisure for families
Jun 2019 • Family
This Park is a fantastic place to take the family because it offers a great variety of activities all year round. There are many well kept Bush and farm tracks where cattle and birds can be seen. There are plenty of signage so you can pick and choose how far to walk.
At the northern entrance of the park you have Totara Park lookout where you get a 360° view of Auckland and Mountain bike tracks. In the middle section you have a couple of playgrounds, a tennis court and a swimming pool (open during Summer).
You also have access to the superb Auckland Botanical gardens. The park often organises special events for families.

Great for families
Dec 2016 • Family
Great outdoor space with lots of things to do. Walking tracks, playgrounds both in the main area as well as inside one of the walking tracks, horse tracks (BYO horse hehe), open tennis court, swimming pool, bbq areas, families quite often bring a ball to run with. Attended a wedding at Beauford's house just this weekend - perfect venue and the staff are super friendly.

Fantastic walks and views
Aug 2016
This is a lovely park with some great tracks. We went on the forest track and then we walked around the outer edge of the park. We had some great fun stretching our legs and breathing in the fresh air.
A very fun few hours!

Park next to a park
May 2015 • Family
This is a great park and right next to the Botanical Gardens. Paths connect between the parks. There is a large car park and a playground and a nice grass area where lots of fitness clubs do their work outs. Friends had a wedding at Beauford's House and it made a great setting. Often do training on the long stairs and running around the park. The back of the park is huge with Mountain biking and Horse riding trails but can also be used for walking.
