Auckland Domain - Review
Auckland Domain is Auckland’s oldest park. Spread across an area of 75 hectares (185 acres), the Wintergardens are its most visited feature. It also houses the infamous Auckland War Memorial Museum. Within the park, there are landscaped lawns and gardens, duck ponds, bush walks, sports fields, sculptures, green houses and picnic areas. An interesting trivia about Auckland Domain- the park has been developed around the cone of an extinct volcano!

Auckland Domain, Auckland Reviews
It is an amazing place to go for a walk. It is just so surreal that there is this massive park with all the different kind of trails right in the middle of the city. While you're there definitely swing by the museum. It is worth your while. There is a big flat piece of grass so if the sun is shining you can go there and play some rugby, soccer, cricket or whatever else your want.
Lots of things to do here. Sports fields to run around in, football on the museum side and cricket near the grandstand. There are plenty of walkways that lead to various areas of the park. the main road goes through the park to exit on Broadway on the Parnell side. A big feature here is the Wintergardens, an all year round glasshouse. There are also quite a few statues and interesting areas around. It is also the venue for many events such as the lantern festival and Auckland arts festival. They have recently put up lots of sign boards to help navigate and area
The biggest park in the central city, and you can find lots of people having their exercise. The Lovers Lane is great to walk especially during spring time when the cherry trees are blossoming. The Auckland War Memorial Museum is also located in this park. the other highest ground in the Auckland Domain is a sacred Maori burial site, so please have some respect when you're around that area. The domain grand stand was a great building with great wooden floor interior, unfortunately, now its outside is mostly occupied by hobos; although they won't hassle you, you might feel a bit uncomfortable.
Auckland domain is a fantastic place to visit, especially on a nice fine day. Whether visiting the stunning Wintergardens (best in Spring), visiting the Museum, going to the cafe, visiting the duckpond...or just strolling amongst the trees and park-like surroundings. Lots of events, and sports clubs use the grounds also. A lovely place to take a picnic and take in the stunning views of Auckland harbour.
Went to the museum with the kids, the older one liked it youngest was scared. It's a good place for a tour and they had a Lego event that kids would enjoy especially for school holidays. Only problem is parking, you can either pay or look for free street parking which is by luck. Good facilities and very educational. Highly recommend
