Shakespear Regional Park
Happy New Year to you! I know it’s a little late but I have had a few days out of the city at my favourite place in the whole world … I am blessed to have access to a beach house out on the end of the Whangaparaoa Peninsular about 40 mins drive north of Auckland – past the pretension of Gulf Harbour and just before the Shakespear Regional Park. The beach house overlooks this lovely park and during many summers there we’ve watched the Park grow from its original acquisition as a working farm to become established with walks and picnicing areas, information boards and excellent facilities. The Auckland Regional Council do us proud at this spot … the beaches are safe and I’m convinced it has it’s own micro-climate … the weather might be grim elsewehre in Auckland but the sun is shining in the park – magic! I suggest you go visit if you have the opportunity.
