Albert Park next to Auckland Art Gallery is a city escape for office workers, students from the adjacent University of Auckland and visitors wishing to indulge in an impromptu picnic in a natural landscape. From the city centre Albert Park is a steep hillside walk through mature pohutukawa trees, flourishing sub-tropical gardens and wending paths with glimpses of the city through the foliage. For visitors to the Auckland Art Gallery the gardens can be viewed through the massive exterior windows inviting you to step outside.
