Tapapakanga Park is a precious and beautiful coastal taunga that offers safe swimming on a pohutukawa fringed coastline. With a freshwater stream and stunning vistas over to the Coromandel peninsula. We are grateful to be able to come together on this sacred land that has significant historical stories with the tangata whenua, Ngati Whanaunga, Ngati Paoa, the Ashby family and Auckland Council.
