La Rosa (Green Bay, Auckland, NZ)

This is a cute little playground in Green Bay.  It isn’t enclosed, so I had to keep a close watch on my little mint.  She loves to climb up to the slides and that’s a great way to burn off her excess energy.

The playground isn’t the only part of La Rosa, there’s a beautiful short walking track around the area.  The track takes you over (and through) the  Fairburn and Parahiku streams.  At the far end of the reserve (near the Lantana Road entrance), there is a community garden growing different fruits and vegetables to show to my little mint.

There is some parking available on La Rosa Street and there are toilets available by the parking area.
