Grey Lynn Park
Grey Lynn Park is a fun neighbourhood playground for all ages, and one of our favourite Auckland playgrounds.
The playground is fun with basket swings, swings, tunnel, slides, balancing logs and a small climbing frame. There is a skate bowl which is used by the older kids, teens and adults. There are lots of sports field space for kids to kick a ball around and have fun flying a kite or any other activity that they can’t do in their backyard space.
The pump track at the far end of the park is a hit with kids of all ages and both scooters and bikes can access it. This end of the park has a basketball court, tennis court, netball hoops and excercise equipment for adults.
There is a toddler’s outdoor paddling pool which is open for summer. The pool is fully fenced with shade sails and is monitored by a life guard when it is open to keep your little ones safe.
For the art fans in your family you will also find some public sculptures by local artists on the eastern side of the park.
