For more than 100 years, Cornwall Park has captured the hearts of the public as a refuge of beauty and recreation in the heart of New Zealand’s largest city. Sir John Logan Campbell, the “Father of Auckland”, gifted Cornwall Park to New Zealand in 1901.
Sir John’s vision was to create a park encompassing a working farm, heritage sites, sports grounds, walks and tree-lined avenues, which New Zealand could treasure forever. Today, the Cornwall Park Trust Board, who manages and operates Cornwall Park, continues to honour Sir John’s wish.
Cornwall Park is 172 hectares (425 acres) of Aotearoa New Zealand’s living history, weaving together our heritage, nature, agriculture, mauri (life force), and community within its lush landscape; free for all to enjoy.
Tūpuna Maunga Authority
The Tūpuna Maunga Authority is the administrator of One Tree Hill.
Auckland's Tūpuna Maunga (ancestral mountains) hold a paramount place in the historical, spiritual, ancestral and cultural identity of the 13 iwi and hapū of Ngā Mana Whenua o Tāmaki Makaurau (the mana whenua tribes of Auckland).
The Tūpuna Maunga o Tāmaki Makaurau Authority (Maunga Authority) was established to co-govern 14 Tūpuna Maunga.
The Tūpuna Maunga Authority has produced a single integrated management plan to set the direction for maunga restoration, protection and management.

What is Pest Free Auckland 2050?
Pest Free Auckland is a community-led conservation programme that we facilitate.
It has three goals:
- eradicate - remove pest animals, plants and pathogens
- restore - restore and connect ecosystems and introduce native species
- tell stories - showcase community action and celebrate success.
Pest Free Auckland is partly funded by the Natural Environment Targeted Rate, which was introduced in July 2018 to help eliminate threats to our native species.
