“ One Tree Hill, the largest parkland in Auckland, is the place where people has a lot to do with. You may climb to the summit to have a 360 view of the city. You may also follow the walkways to explore the different parts of the park. By the way, you will see sheeps and cattle. It seems like you are in a real farm. You could see different plants, flowers in different season. You could even pick up some fruits in autumn. ”
