The Auckland Domain is the city's oldest park. The 75 hectare park has been developed around the cone of an extinct volcano, and features a variety of amenities in the area.
The Wintergardens are a feature of the Domain with the Auckland War Memorial Museum sitting at the highest point. There are formal gardens, duck ponds, large green open spaces edged by mature trees, bush walks and statuary.

In the Auckland Domain lies one of New Zealand's hottest spots to catch Pokemon Go. Yep, they're hidden in and around the Wintergardens and just waiting to be caught. With regular Pokemon Go events planned to bring Auckland locals who love to play the game together, you'll find Poliwag, Venonat, Bellsprout, Pinsir, Paras, Ekans, Scyther, Growlithe and Voltorb.
I can’t wait to celebrate the Lantern Festival here over the weekend. So happy it’s moved to this new venue - which will surely bring more space and allow less people gridlock. Every year I buy my flashing light headband, over eat on street food and take loads of blurry pics on my camera. It’s awesome.
