New playground at Home Reserve pocket park in Grey Lynn

Check out this cute pocket park in Home Reserve in Arch Hill in Grey Lynn that has had a makeover with a new playground and half basketball court.  The small intimate park means neighbours can meet and watch their children play and have fun together while they catch up at this family-friendly Auckland playground.

The park is partially fenced and has a wooden tower with two slides and some wooden stepping stones and a small climbing net for the little kids. 

The half-basketball court is fun for young kids, teenagers and adults to shoot some hoops and enjoy playing basketball outside with their friends.  With the half court kids can learn how to take turns playing offense and defense roles and practice dribbling as well as play some fun basketball shooting games together.

Auckland for Kids likes the tui’s painting between the playground and the basketball court, but we live the local’s sign ” We Love Home Reserve” sign even more!

Home Reserve Playground is in Home Street in Arch Hill in Grey Lynn. 

The closest cafe and eateries to the park is the Hardware Cafe in Bunnings Grey Lynn which also has an indoor playground and on the other side of Great North Road is Phillippe’s Chocolate for delicious sweet treats.

Not too far from the playground when you cross over the motorway on Bond St is Nixon Park and Nixon Skatepark in Kingsland. Or if you head in the opposite direction you can reach one of our favourite Auckland parks Grey Lynn Park from Williamson Avenue, which runs parallel to Great North Road.

Grey Lynn Library is also not too far away at 474 Great North Road. Uptown Bounce indoor trampoline park is further down Great North Road in the heart of Grey Lynn along with two more cafes, the Postal Service and Josy Cafe.
