Guide to 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?
Myers Park playground equipment for toddlers
The play equipment at this Auckland playground is a little unique, a modern twist on old favourites.
- spinning disks
- a giant squash pumpkin slide
- toddler swings
- giant reimagined “leaves” to climb over and around, 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.
See how long it takes the family members to get around this without touching the floor.
Try the monkey bars with a difference.
Watch out – those metal circles move unexpectedly!
Concrete Step Parkour
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 – super LONG chains help it swing super dooper high!
I loved the rubber mat flooring underneath the climbing frame and swings.
Where to eat near Myers Park Auckland
Head downhill to Sky World Entertainment Centre on Queen street, and cross the street to find a row of yummy fast food options.
Or BYO picnic.
There’s plenty of vintage-style bench seating, lush green grass for your picnic rug, and city views to boot.
