"A place of public resort for the recreation and enjoyment of the people of New Zealand" said its donor. The Park has centuries-old heritage sites, wide-open spaces, tree lined avenues and walks, places of peace and tranquillity in a large city, sports grounds including tennis and bowls and a working farm for the education of city children.

John Logan Campbell, Auckland resident since 1840 and, at the time of this gift, mayor, gave the park's 230 acres to a private trust on 10 June 1901. Maungakiekie had been purchased by the national government in 1845 and since 2012 belongs to Ngā Mana Whenua o Tāmaki Makaurau Collective.

Campbell chose to present the deeds the following day to the visiting heir to the throne, the duke of Cornwall and York later George V asking his consent for it to be named Cornwall Park in honour of the duke. A few weeks later the adjoining Alexandra Park was named in honour of the duke's mother.
