About the path

There are access points to Monte Cecilia Park on several surrounding streets.

Enjoy a leisurely walk through a Victorian designed landscape setting.

The walk is great for all ages. You'll need to plan time to enjoy the big shady trees, views towards Maungakiekie (One Tree Hill) and Mangere Mountain.

Its rugged terrain means you should take a sturdy buggy and leave the kids' scooters at home. The path is generally quite wide with some paved sections. The rest is gravel.

A short wooden boardwalk takes you through the ‘wetlands’ area at the bottom of the park beside Marcellin College.

The grassy slopes are great for summer picnics, throwing a ball or frisby.
