Had a great day out here, wildlife watching. It is free and has lots of different habitats, all within walking distance. Take a picnic as there is nowhere to purchase food or drink - just water fountains. Plently of restrooms around the park.

We went to the park when it was raining. It was a pleasant walk and there are several alternate routes. we could hear the birds but only caught a brief glimpse of them due to the dense foilage.

Loved our visit to Shakespeare's park on Sunday afternoon. Plenty of good walking and wildlife to see along the way. Don't forget to get the obligatory photo with the huge frame!

We were prepared to be disappointed after driving through mile after mile of suburbia north of Auckland. We visited this park because it was on the map as we traveled up the East Coast of the North Island. What a surprise. This ranks as one...More

Bay hopping, Okoromai Bay, Te Haruhi Bay, Army Bay, feed the peacocks at the Te Haruhi Bay, cockles gathering at the Okoromai Bay or early rise to catch the sunrise or enjoy the sunset colour of the sky.

Enjoyed seeing the New Zealand dotterals - good luck to the volunteers who are doing such a good job protecting them.

Love the park. Always go for a ramble when we are in Manly. There are trails to suite all abilities. Definitely family friendly!
