Awesome summit of Mount Albert. Very beautiful scenery especially during sunsets. A peaceful place without tourists unlike Mt Eden.

Great spot up on the mountain. Shame about the cultural vandalism planned with the destruction of 100’s of mature trees because of the crime of being from another country.

Some parts currently under reconstruction, but one can still climb up to see the city view. Around park there are some historic information. To reach the top you need to climb up a bit, but view is worth it.

There is limited parking. But the views and exotic trees are marvellous. Wheelchair friendly for a strong pusher. You dont need to reach the very summit to enjoy great views.

Great views, fun little walking/mountain biking trail around the mountain, and a nice big flat field area in the centre.Gates close 7PM winter, 8.30PM summer. Quite a few areas where a couple of cars can park, if you keep driving around at the top.

A beautiful spot any time of day. Long may it keep its cloak of trees which provide homes to many birds and other creatures.

Review №34

A lovely green space not overly manufactured kind of like what nature intended. Great walk around the mountain fab views . Road is pedestrian only so you can wander along in peace..playing fields for kids to run and kick and plenty of bush for hiding out and hut making.But now some bunch of green terrorists under the guise of council are going to chop out all the exotic trees and replace with natives...this is lunacy.Why chop down a massive pine and replace with a twig of a native...it will make the place look like a bomb has hit the ..let alone the lack of carbon uptake.Such a beautiful park being destroyed by evangelical greens

Good maunga for a walk.

Its not clear where the dogs can run free, they cant go into the sports field nor the archery field? Wondering why its considered a dog park at all

Beautiful summit, well maintained and accessible. No loud tourists or obnoxious double-decker buses at the entrance like there were at Mount Eden. Shame what’s being done to the 345 trees though, I support the peaceful protest. A delightful group with only good intentions.

Review №42

The views were great but mount is an area with dogs off leash. Good for people with pets to walk with. Not so much if you are uncomfortable around dogs.

Review №43

Beautiful drive or walk to the top. One of the best mountains in central. Went up her with my young sisters and they loved it too. Such a great view. Perfect spot to reflect and relax.

Ha
Review №44

Great place to take your dogs, the entire mountain is off least apart from the soccer field, and when the archery is on in the other field. There are toilets, and a few benches to sit on, but is a great spot to watch the sun go down. Often see families either playing a bit of sport or flying kites up there.

Anything I say here will not be sufficient to say how beautiful it is. You would have to visit and experience it. New Zealand nature is beautiful and worth experiencing in person rather than through reviews.

Sad that the vehicle access has been stopped, still a nice place to go with little kids. A little bit a bush, an easy mountain climb to the peak. Its super easy

Review №53

A nice domain in the Mount Roskill/Mount Albert suburbs. Not too high, at the same time not too short. You can drive up to the top, but walking up the domain is also fun especially with its rather gentle slopes. If you dont like to walk on the asphalt, you can walk on hike through the grass and fields. Theres also a few off-leash area for dogs.

First time up here at night with my 2 energetic Kelpie X 7mth pups. We arrived around 7pm just as the security guard was closing the main gate. Best time to take my two I believe because there are no cars going up and down. Exquisite views of the city and area - I cant wait to do it again!

Great place to walk your dog especially during winter as you can walk on the road. The enclosed dog field is too muddy to use during winter but is great during summer.
