Myers Park Playground
Pop the Myers Park Playground on your bucket list of things to do with kids in Auckland. It’s definitely worth a look.
Smack bang in the centre of the city, this green oasis of beautifully designed play equipment has stuff for all ages to do.
Myers Park is just 5 minutes walk from Aotea Square at Sky World Entertainment Centre and the yummy hole-in-the-wall food stalls opposite. Auckland Art Gallery and Auckland Library are nearby too.
Things to do in Auckland for Toddlers
Toddlers and preschoolers will love the animal sculptures. Can you find the birds, the snail, and the caterpillar?
There’s spinning disks, a giant squash pumpkin slide, toddler swings, giant leaves to climb, and soft artificial grass to soften any falls.
BYO marbles to run down the spiral marble runs – find one on a Flower Petal pole.
Best Playgrounds in Auckland for Older Kids and Teens?
Older kids and teens won’t be bored at Myers Park Playground either.
Parkour is the name of the game here, with a climbing gym with slides, chain ropes, and balance beams. Try the monkey bars with a difference. Watch out – those circles move!
Nearby, the giant concrete steps, and the wooden platform with ledges and angled rises, challenge for the most nimble of feet.
My boys loved the spider web swing – long chains help it swing super dooper high!
I loved the rubber mat flooring underneath the climbing frame and swings.

The reality of travelling with kids – bored and grumpy even at playgrounds!

Toadstool Rating – Auckland Playgrounds, Myers Park Playground Review
YES! Do stop by and bring a picnic. There’s plenty of vintage-style bench seating, lush green grass, and city views to boot.
