About the path

A peaceful stroll along the northern slopes of Pukekawa / Auckland Domain, through lush native bush and sculpture gardens.

The scenic loop path is easy to navigate, with paved and gravel paths on gentle slopes. The Centennial Glade Path makes a great family walk, so bring along the pram.

Start in the lower Domain and follow the Centennial Walkway. As well as grand pōhutukawa trees, you'll see some fantastic outdoor art sculptures including:

  • Promise Boat (Louise Purvis, 2005)
  • Numbers are the Language of Nature (Chiara Corbelletto, 2005)
  • Arc (Charlotte Fisher, 2004)

If you're interested, take the short diversion down Cherry Grove to the Kari Street Commons, where you can discover an oriental garden.

Turn onto Domain Drive for a short distance, then turn left onto Lovers Lane. Meander down Lovers Lane, then turn into Glade Path. Follow the peaceful bush path back to the starting point.
