Adjacent to the University of Auckland, Albert Park is a fine example of a Victorian-era municipal park, complete with formal gardens, band rotunda, fountain, statues and flowered clock. The Albert Barracks were here--hence the military gun installation! Free concerts, usually sponsored by b-FM, the University's alternative radio station, are held at the rotunda on summer weekends. Albert Park is also a popular lunch break destination for Auckland's office workers, who make the trek uphill from Queen Street, just two blocks away.
