There are 25 Regional Parks throughout the Auckland region that have lots of walks, picnic areas, safe swimming beaches, historic sites, and places to camp in them. One thing to note though is take extra plastic bags as none of these parks have rubbish bins, you must take your rubbish home. A good place to get a whole bunch of useful information about the regional parks is the Arataki Visitor Centre in the Waitakere Ranges.
