Free Playground

Butterfly Creek has one of the best family friendly playgrounds in Auckland.  Relax with a coffee while the kids run around and burn off some energy.

Entrance to the café and playground is free, but only café food can be consumed onsite.  If you bring your own food you can use the tables outside the park entrance before you come in.
