Meander down the site's paths, view the vibrant flowers, and admire the beautifully designed green space in the heart of the city.

  • This park is right next to Auckland CBD and the university. There are a lot of students enjoying the sun or doing some sports. It's quite a lively park.  more »

  • Albert Park is a great place to chill on a sunny day. Its one of the biggest grassed areas in the CBD itself, and its so relaxing to sit by the fountain & watch the world go by. You can also find a lot of history in the park, in the way of statues/displays with plaques explaining their significance. Yes, there are public conveniences within the park. The numerous entrances/exits to the park help to make your next destination seem just a little closer to get to =)
  • This park it has a fantastic view of the sky tower. It's always so clean and you really feel the fresh air everywhere. You can go any time alone or with friends to take a break. Be seated In a bench and relax.
  • Across from the art gallery and library, this park is fantastic to go and relax in. There's plenty of fields to play games, or benches to rest on, while you watch majestic structures and statues. I particularly loved the water fountain.
  • A lovely park to stroll through. If you have kids there are some fab trees for climbing. Only disappointment is the big plant clock which never seems to be working (I assume this is due to prats who keep damaging it).
  • Sweet park to just hangout. An amazing gazebo in the middle surrounded by curling and twisting trees.
