Mangere boasts the stunning Ambury Regional Park, perfect for coastal strolls. Manukau’s got the Botanic Gardens, a green paradise for nature lovers.

Manurewa’s Rainbow’s End theme park is a hit for families. Papakura offers the scenic Hunua Ranges for hiking enthusiasts and Penrose surprises with hidden urban trails.
