Owner description: This elegant garden close to downtown Auckland has towering palm trees, a floral clock, a Victorian fountain, statues and an Argentinian ombu tree, whose enormous roots grow above ground.

We spotted the Chinese lanterns suspended in the trees and headed up the steep hill from Queens Street to investigate. The gardens are beautifully maintained with people weeding and dead-heading as necessary. The lantern displays were artistically arranged and would look great in the dusk/night time. It is a park that is well used by both tourists and locals; some were exercising, others having a picnic lunch and for the majority it was a place to chill out and take in the scenery and enjoy the sun. Lovely place and very peaceful away from the hustle of the city centre.

First full day in the city, sandwich in hand, we stopped in Albert Park at lunchtime. Calm oasis in the city. Why can't we find place like this at home? Good place to chill and recharge before heading off for more walking - this time to the Museum.

I had a great time. The lanterns were all pretty amazing. Lots of souvenirs and gifts. There were things for kids to do, I missed some sort of parade though. You can even buy your own small paper lantern with a candle in it. I would love to go back to NZ and do this all over again. My visit was back in Feb 2010, catching up in reviews!!

I wander through Albert park regularly, it definitely works out the legs making in up the paths. A really nice place to have a picnic and chill out with friends.
