Auckland Central Gardens and Parks

Gardens and Parks in Auckland are magnets for the chilled out people who live here. Join the locals, sunbathing on weekends, or use the open spaces to jog off the extra calories you'll accumulate while you're here.  

Auckland Parks and Gardens are everywhere. Even when it feels like you're in the heart of a busy, bustling city, you can turn a corner and walk into a green oasis of peace and quiet. The various parks (known as Domains) are spread evenly throughout the city. In the CBD, just off the waterfront, are Albert Park and Victoria Park. Auckland Domain is a large area of parkland a little further south, and home to the War Memorial Museum. Mount Eden Domain and Cornwall Park are two of the most popular leisure destinations at weekends. Auckland Botanic Gardens are beautiful and instantly relaxing. To the west, Western Springs (and the Zoo) are very popular with walkers and animal lovers. North Shore has dozens of parks and green spaces, especially around the University's North Shore campus. Many parks will allow barbecues in nice weather, but do check beforehand. Summer activities in Auckland's Parks and Gardens can include outdoor movies, kids activities, festivals, fairs and sporting events.
