Cabbage Tree Swamp

1.  Cabbage Tree Swamp Road |Corner Sandringham Road 

Extending south from Sandringham Road was one of Auckland’s earliest roads, Cabbage Tree Swamp Road. This led out to the Wesleyan Mission School at Three Kings which was established in 1847.
Drainage works at Eden Park from 1914 to 1926 did away with the causeway and swamp.
