Owner description: Characterized by its formal gardens, this park is a great place to relax just minutes away from the city center.

We got to spend quite bit of time here last year and were amazed at the beauty of the park with all the walkways and duck pond, plus the little cafe had just reopened and was a godsend for icecream and cold drinks also do yummy lunches there and what a fab place to hold a wedding! We did a lot of walking in the park and found it well set out with picnic areas and artworks and of course the lovely gardens there were in full bloom and the grounds are kept very well groomed. The museum of course - all in all a great place to visit and hard to believe you're in the middle of Auckland City.

If you are at the museum great place for a walk and a picnic. Especially fantastic when the outdoor summer concerts are on before and after Christmas.

Christmas in the Park, cycle around it, walk it, catch the bus to it. Picturesque, and a green surprise in the middle of the City! Picnic there too....

Couldn't visit Auckland without doing this. Museum in the middle, winter gardens too. And great views, fresh air and open spaces. What's not to like?

Every Sunday afternoon through to Easter the Domain is home to the' Music In The Parks'.Grab a blanket, a bottle and some food and enjoy a picnic and great jazz . The winter garden is a wonderful space and also hosts classical music.There are enjoyable walks down through the lovers lane to the city. The Domain connects to Parnell land Grafton . I walked from Ponsonby to Parnell passing along Krangahape Rd is one of the great urban walks anywhere.The green Link bus also pass around the domain and is a convenient connection to the city and the hip neighborhood of Ponsonby
