“Feed the ducks”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

If you're going to the museum add on an hour or two to look around the domain. The Wintergarden greenhouses are a victorian treat and a great place for photos. You may have to push a bride or two away to get the best spots. Also walk around the gardens looking at the statues that pop up in hidden corners. Best of all take some stale bread and a small person along and feed the ducks in the ponds below the glasshouses. Free fun!

Reviewed 28 April 2012

Beautiful place with all sorts of interesting sites to visit - Winter garden, Auckland museum etc. Love the bush and the gardens with quiet places to spend an hour just watching the world go by.

“Any park you like.”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

Awesome and well worth the moments of peace and isolation you can find in any corner. Exploring it is great and you always find something new around the area, glowworms, sculpture, flora, bush, streams, ponds, frogs.

“big park...”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

with it love lane, winter garden, nice entrance gate and one location with Auckland Museum so this place is a great and perfect place to spend some hours to enjoy what Auckland offers to it guest. It has a nice garden inside and also some sport facility for Cricket lover. Some track will lead us to A Coast To Coast track from Auckland Domain to Viaduct or just downtown of Auckland. Close to go to anywhere from this park, to the new modern shopping atmosphere of New Market or for a long distance traveller that using the motorway or State Highway no 1 that lead us to Up North or to south to Hamilton or King Country region.
