It will be good to go Orakei Basin every week or every other week. What an excellent walkway for causal walk. ( average spending around 45 mins )A couple of entry places can start your trail, easy to park your car or even take the AT train there. ( close to a train station ).Good to seeing ppl enjoy the park here, walking, run, water sport, picnic, walk with dog.... or even take photos, so many activities you can do here.Friendly reminder: bring water, hat with you, jacket ( windy sometime )Surprising you can see the Auckland cityline from some spot here. ( if you have a visitor coming, you can bring him/ her here to take some touristy photos also).
