"Enjoy a Stroll Around the Lake"

Western Springs, known as Waiorea by Maori, began flowing when lava from Three Kings volcano filled the original stream bed 70,000 years ago. From the late 1870s, Western Springs was the main source of fresh water for Auckland. It was pumped across the city via a huge steam-powered beam engine which is now the centerpiece at neighboring MOTAT (Museum of Transport and Technology). The springs contain a series of freshwater lakes, filled by the still-active springs, which attract a wide range of waterfowl. There is an excellent, large playground in the westernmost corner, over the fence from Auckland Zoo.
