Western Springs Park

This short lakeside walk in central Auckland is easy and fun in summer or winter.

Also known as Waiorea, Western Springs Park has a paved footpath around the natural spring-fed lake, which was one of Auckland’s water supplies. The lake is home to pukeko, ducks, geese and swans. There’s a playground near the far side of the walk. The walk is mostly flat but has some small hills to challenge the pram-pushers. Free parking is available on the roads beside the park.
