View from the Sky Tower to the Albert Park and above it the Auckland Domain with the Auckland War Memorial Museum.

Albert Park is one of Auckland’s most important parks. Its central location in the heart of the City Centre, together with its long history and distinctive character, have earned it a special place in the hearts of Aucklanders and made it an important destination for visitors.

The Auckland Domain is Auckland's oldest park, and at 75 hectares one of the largest in the city. Located in the central suburb of Grafton, the park contains all of the explosion crater and most of the surrounding tuff ring of the Pukekawa volcano. The park is home to one of Auckland's main tourist attractions, the Auckland War Memorial Museum, which sits prominently on the crater rim (tuff ring).
