Events for 30+ people
We welcome you to host your event or group activity at Cornwall Park. Bookings are essential for groups of 30 or more. We are unable to accept bookings for commercial activities or exclusive use of any one area. Enquiries here.
Dogs are welcome in the park, but must be on a lead at all times. This is vital to protect our animals. During lambing and calving season we also do not allow dogs in certain areas, which will be signposted and displayed on Park Updates.
Acacia Cottage, built in 1841, is the oldest remaining wooden cottage in Auckland. Situated directly across the road from Huia Lodge, it can be viewed between 7am and dusk daily. See See & Do.
BBQs are available free for use on a first come, first served basis. Gas and wood are provided, you’ll just need matches or kindling to get the fire going. Please show respect for those waiting, and clean the BBQ and surrounding area after use. You’re welcome to bring your own portable gas BBQ (no charcoal or coal allowed), but these must be on legs and positioned away from the trees. See Maps and See & Do.
You are more than welcome to bring your own food and drink into the park and set up a picnic for a moment or the whole day. If your picnic has more than 30 guests, we will need an advance booking. Enquiries here.

No commercial or corporate activity
Our aim is to provide a beautiful, free space for people to enjoy. With this in mind, we do not allow any commercial or corporate activity in the park e.g. bootcamps, classes, paid-tours, sponsored events or activations.
