About the Area – Barry Curtis Park
Barry Curtis Park is the largest urban park to be developed in Auckland in the last 100 years, and once completed it will be larger than Auckland Domain.
An ecological ‘Wetland Neighbourhood Play Park’ is intended to prompt children’s interest in wetlands and stormwater ponds through interactive features, play elements and sculpture.
The park incorporates 55km of protected natural stream and gully areas that create a network of ‘green fingers’ that connect the residential areas of Flat Bush with the park. A majority of existing houses are within a five minute walk of a ‘green finger’.
