Otamariki Park playground and basketball court are located in Ōtara in South Auckland and is close to the vibrant Ōtara town centre.  Otamariki Park is also at the start of the Ōtara Path which is a fun walking or mountain bike trail that goes through the Ōtara Creek Reserve and follows Ōtara Creek to Creek to end and then around the outside of  Ngati Ōtara Park where you will find another playground. The full path is an 8km walk, but if  the kids get tired you can just do part of the walk or there are a few park benches along the way to stop for a rest.
