Park
“This is my favorite spot in Auckland, I always go there when I want to watch the sunset with the city in the background. Can easily be reached by bus. This park is right of missing Bay beach, so you can spend the day by the beach then come here for a great sunset. Bring warm clothes because Auckland gets quite windy and cold ;P ”
