“Beautiful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

A stunning place to walk around. A nature paradise right in the city. Be sure to walk through the Wintergardens too. Wow. Then walk up to the Auckland Museum. Beautiful architecture and displays inside.

“Excellent view of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Clean, lots of hiking trails, can spend an entire day in this green park. Make sure to stop for a bite to eat in Parnell next door and visit some local galleries . French farmers market on Saturday and Sunday are great for breakfast or lunch before the hole (closes at 1:30 pm)

“A beautiful park in the city center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

It's located in the east side of the CBD, near the beach road.
It has a dense jungle and also an open grass covered garden. Very beautiful.
We saw some Ducks and parrots. It has a small lake as well.
If you are in the city center and you don't have a car to go out of the city for a good day walk, try Auckland Domain.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Botanical Gardens are very tired and not well maintained in my opinion. I would not be proud to take visitors here. Beautiful old trees were lovely to see but little else that was exceptional

“Wonderful park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

I enjoyed the stroll in the park greatly. The grounds are extensive and to me looked more like a forest then a park. The flowerbeds were beautiful and the duck ponds as well
