What do you like best about One Tree Hill?

It’s quiet, cen­tral and Corn­wall Park is a na­tional trea­sure. How long have you lived here and where are you orig­i­nally from?

His gift to the people of Auck­land, a work­ing farm less than 10 min­utes from the CBD, pro­vides us all with a place to un­wind, re­lax, ex­er­cise and en­joy the views. If I was Auck­land’s mayor I would . . .

Put a stop to ex­tor­tion­ate in­ner-city park­ing fees. The spot I would rec­om­mend to tourists is . . .

The sum­mit of One Tree Hill, any West Coast beach or, fur­ther afield, take a drive out to the light­house on the tip of the south­ern Manukau Heads. When I have a few hours spare I like to . . .

Catch the lat­est movie dur­ing the day.
