Parrs Park is a large multi-use park in Oratia, west Auckland. It has recently been redeveloped, and is in the running for two awards for excellence in parks and green-space design.
Visitors can enjoy the park’s walking tracks, picnic areas, gardens, skate park, grassy fields and an artificial sports turf that is open for public use.
The new playground, named Apple Box, draws inspiration from the area’s history, including the Oratia Beauty, a well-known local apple variety.
Other attractions include the north-eastern area, developed in 2012 into a recreation area with picnic tables, boardwalks and a wetland habitat, and Waikumete Stream, which has been restored and planted with native vegetation along its banks.
