Friends of Regional Parks Auckland



We advocate for Auckland's Regional Parks!

Our Objectives:

Auckland's Regional Parks

With the first reserve created in 1895,  Auckland's Regional Parks are now priceless taonga  where residents and visitors can freely enjoy recreation on beaches, in native forests, or on farm landscapes.

Auckland's  28 Regional parks, cover more than 45,000 hectares. They include over 20,000 hectares of native forest, over 1,000 kilometres of undeveloped coastline and two marine reserves.

Walkers have diverse opportunities over 500  hundred  kilometres of coastal and inland tracks.

Rich in natural flora and fauna,  regional parks allow  Aucklanders to enjoy some of the  finest landscapes, forests and coastlines.  

They offer relaxing recreation in natural settings,  and heighten appreciation of our maori and farming heritage.
