This is inner city cool just a stone’s throw from the hubbub of Ponsonby Road’s bar and restaurant buzz. Fashionable Freeman’s Bay attracts empty nesters and single professionals who have the best of both worlds being close to Western Park and Victoria Park green spaces too.
Located only 2km from central Auckland, Western Park is renowned on the city fringe for its green space, being roughly 8ha in size. Recognizable for its unique sculptures by local John Radford, they depict buildings that once stood in Auckland. Containing something for everyone, there are numerous picnic tables and park benches, a playground for the kids, as well as a viewing platform, fitness trails through the mature trees, and tennis courts and sports fields on the lower flat area. It’s a popular spot for local professionals to enjoy their lunch.
