Record-Breaking Attendance: Auckland Regional Parks Flourish in Early 2024

Auckland Regional Parks have shattered previous records with an estimated 2.5 million visits in the first quarter of 2024, marking the highest visitation numbers for this period ever recorded, according to Auckland Council's data. Auckland Council Manager Regional Parks Scott De Silva was pleased to see the record visitors numbers.

"The record-breaking numbers of people visiting our regional parks show just how much Aucklanders and visitors to our city love to experience our stunning nature reserves, native bush and coastal areas. These parks are a breath of fresh air, keeping us happy, healthy and connected to each other and our environment.

“A huge ‘ngā mihi’ to our hard-working Auckland Council rangers, wider parks teams and volunteers for making our regional parks a place where Aucklanders want to spend time and a home for our birds and native wildlife to thrive.”

This surge in park visitations aligns with Auckland's recent accolades on a global scale. Following Auckland being ranked 9th in the world by the State of the City 2023 report report for its quality of Outdoor Activities, these record numbers not only reflect the city’s commitment to enhancing its green spaces but also the increasing value residents and visitors place on accessible outdoor experiences. This recognition underscores the successful efforts of Auckland's management teams and the city’s ongoing commitment to promoting a healthier, more connected community through its natural landscapes.
