Auckland Memorial Park is located on 17 hectares (35 acres) in Silverdale - kilometres north of the Harbour Bridge. Set in a natural amphitheatre looking north-east towards the Hauraki Gulf, it occupies a spot of tranquillity and natural beauty.
This natural beauty has been enhanced by a multi-million dollar programme of landscaping. A series of terraces sweeps up the enclosing hillsides, ensuring that every burial plot enjoys a peaceful aspect of surrounding countryside, or is situated close to the water gardens.
The Park's lakes and gardens provide the perfect setting in which to stroll or simply sit and contemplate. The whole Park is planted with trees and shrubs, not only for their beauty but to encourage birdlife. Anyone may visit to enjoy the special atmosphere and beautiful surroundings. Picnics, family outings - even musical events of an appropriate nature - conducted respectively, are encouraged because Auckland Memorial Park is a place to celebrate life as much as to mourn death.
