Several sports fields occupy the floor of the crater, circling to the south of the cone, while the rim opposite the Museum hosts the cricket pavilion and Auckland City Hospital. The Wintergarden, with two beautiful glass houses, lie on the north side of the central scoria cone. The fernery has been constructed in an old quarry in part of the cone. The duck ponds lie in the northern sector of the explosion crater, which is breached to the north with a small overflow stream.

Hi Nick, i didn't know you went to NZ, i should have followed your posts. I thought i've seen these landscape also, but i didn't go there so maybe i mistook the landscape in Prince Albert's Park at the center of Auckland. Those are lovely photos you got there.ReplyDelete
