Archived: Auckland Domain

The park lies mostly within the crater of the Pukekawa volcano

The Auckland Domain is the city's oldest park and is spacious and diverse. The 75 hectare park has been developed around the cone of an extinct volcano. The 'tuff rings' created by volcanic activity thousands of years ago can be seen in the land contours and forms a natural amphitheatre with about 10 hectares developed as first-class sports fields. There are formal gardens, duck ponds, large green open spaces edged by mature trees, bush walks and statuary.

A garden for the blind is located near the intersection of Titoki Street and Maunsell Road extension and contains raised beds of aromatic, herbaceous and sensory plants.
