This park features beautiful gardens and a lovely memorial for one of New Zealand's most beloved labor prime ministers. I was only here for a short time but was taken away by the lush greenery and rich florals. It is a very well maintained area.

A great place to visit for the views of Auckland and the harbour. If you like symmetry and neat gardens, this is a great place to go to keep your eyes happy. Recommended for graduation / wedding / family photoshoots.

I can spend a whole morning in The Savage Garden. It has wonderful views of the sea and the islands and so many flowers around you. You can sit by the grass or the benches around the landmark.

Its nearly winter so we were not able to see too many flowers in bloom and the best time is likely spring, but the gardens are still very pretty and vast. Its a great picnic spot and a beautiful spot to see Auckland city from. Lovely place also to take a lot of photographs.
