For tourists in New Zealand there are many places to explore and also to relax all across the country. Even amidst the busy Central Business District there are places of interest and little nooks and crannies to explore.
Western Park, Auckland is a medium sized public park that is located in the area known as Freeman’s Bay in New Zealand and this region is on the West of the central Business District. It is a beautiful setting with many boardwalks and a serene atmosphere, making it an ideal spot to go for a morning or an evening walk.
What is really interesting about this setting is that it is undoubtedly one of the oldest parks in the city, if not the oldest. The premises dates back to the mid eighteenth century. It is one of the main reasons why it should be visited.
It is said that the original park was on a plot that was in the shape of a coffin, but over the years there have been many modifications to its shape and size. It is also said that there had been a stream that ran across the land and it had been referred to as the Tuna Mau. In the local language Maori, it is translated as the place of eel trapping. It is indeed a delightful setting to go after a busy day in the Central Business District or even before the start of a long day to get a bit of exercise or fresh air. Not only foreigners but even locals go here from time to time to spend time and it is also a nice venue for a little picnic on a weekend.
For business executives, families on holiday or any other vacationers who come to this city from anywhere in the world or other parts of the country, an Auckland hotel can be selected depending on their requirements. For the traveller who is keen to stay close to the most happening area and have access to the corporate offices and businesses, and looking for a hotel Auckland CBD, the best hotel to stay is the Copthorne Hotel Auckland Harbour City.
