Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Erected in 2004 Kaitiaka , a sculpture by Fred Graham, in Domain park near the War Memorial Museum, is an imposing sculpture. In Maori lore birds were the first inhabitants of, New Zealand and were regarded as kaitiaki (guardians). Fred Graham’s kaitiake is a hawk. Set in this park, fabulous for a walk around

This place blooms especially this quarantine time. A very relaxing, peaceful, and nature at its finest at this time. Everything here is beautiful! You just walk slowly to communicate with nature. Breath slowly and internalise what a beautiful world we have!

Loved the day we spent here...even got a little lost and didn't mind at all. The cafe in Wintergarden is delightful with seating outside next to the pond. We are walkers so it was a treasure. Took the bus here and back to our hotel. Great value and experience!

Absolute love the park 😊
10 min bus ride from Auckland CBD . Park houses war museum and winter garden .
Park has so much to offer to both, locals and tourists, regardless of the time of the year. Whether you are a museum and history lover, botanical and animal lover, or prefer activities like walking, running or playing rugby, you will find fun in this massive park.
On-site restaurant also one in museum . Plenty to do . You can spend easily few hours !

Wonderfully maintained, clean, safe and attractive.

Toilets and parking available.

Lots of open space to explore, as well as the Gardens, the museum, the lake and the cafe.
 
Always a pleasure to return to walk around.

We had a quick escape to NZ from the fires here in Australia. We walked across the city for the day and came through The Domain on the way back to Parnell. Lovely pa4k, some great tree av3nues near the tennis stadium, some ok sculptures. Top of the pa4k was the war memorial, great views around the cifty. Fun day

A really nice place to walk around, or to have a picnic on a blanket. It is right beside the Auckland War Memorial Museum, so a great place to make a whole day of it.
