Cornwall Park

Cornwall Park

The park is renowned for its landscape design and wide variety of mature trees. It is centred on a volcanic cone, One Tree Hill, with many interesting geological features. A pre-European Maori fortification (pa) was built on the cone, many features of which can still be seen.

The parks donor, Sir John Logan Campbell, is buried on the summit of One Tree Hill alongside the obelisk. The Maori name for the hill is Maungakiekie - mountain of the kiekie. Kiekie (Freycinettia banksii) grows as an epiphytic climber or vine. Immediately adjacent to the Park is One Tree Hill Domain, administered by Auckland Council. The two parks are run under different management but with very similar objectives.

Cornwall Park is administered by the Cornwall Park Trust Board at no cost to the ratepayers of Auckland.
Visitors can experience them as one park.  We hope you enjoy your visit.
