Auckland - Western Park, Ponsonby

Be warned!!! This is a dog friendly park!

Western Park, Ponsonby

Yes, that means people walking about with their dogs WITHOUT a leash. The small dogs are great to get a bit of air off, but it's the big ones you gotta watch out for. One thing Western Park has in it's favour is the variety of runs it provides. You can make it as cruzy or as technical as you like. It's probably a good 200m long and on quite an angle so you can pick up some pretty good speed.

This place is an absolute swamp in winter, but summer riding here is the bomb! There are a lot of trees and it really is a beautiful park.
