Marlborough Park playground is a modern playground for all ages of children and youth in Glenfield on the North Shore of Auckland. 

The colourful playground was added in 2017 and has fun mini in-ground trampolines, water-play features, slides, tunnels, basket swings, hill mounds, swing bridge, speak-a-tubes and more. The bright yellow court is to enjoy playing basketball and netball on.

A new playspace for youth and teens above the skatebowl was added to the park in July 2019.    The youth playspace (as shown below on an Auckland winter day) was designed for youth to play, relax and to engage with the skatepark.  There is a climbing net, hammocks, swings, balance beams and concrete bench seats. The older skate park has multiple hips and pump lines, a few ledges and a bowl section.
