Parrs Park

Parrs Park is a large multi-use park in Oratia, west Auckland.

Visitors can enjoy the park’s walking tracks, picnic areas, gardens, skate area, basketball court, grassy fields and an artificial sports turf that is open for public use. A new half pipe skate ramp will be installed in late 2019. The park has a large dog off leash area in the northern area as well as community facilities such as a table tennis club and a swimming pool available for swimming lessons and lane swimming.

There is a large all ages playground, named Apple Box, that draws inspiration from the area’s history, including the Oratia Beauty, a well-known local apple variety.

The north-eastern area of the park was developed in 2012 into an attractive recreation area with picnic tables, boardwalks and a wetland habitat along Waikumete Stream. The stream has been restored and planted with native vegetation along its banks.
