Changes to parking around the Auckland Domain

Changes to parking in and around the Auckland Domain

Auckland City Council is making some changes to parking in and around the Auckland Domain, to ensure everyone can continue to have access to this popular park and the surrounding area.

From Tuesday, 1 May, changes to pay and display parking in the streets around the Domain will mean lower tariffs for motorists and the opportunity to park longer. The length of time you can park for free within the Domain will be reduced.

"Visitors can still park in the Domain for free for up to two hours, but we want to ensure these spaces are being used as intended," says Councillor Richard Simpson, chairperson of the council's Transport and Urban Linkages Committee.

"Free, short term parking within the grounds is provided for people who want to use the Domain for recreation.

"Pay and display parking around the Domain allows motorists to stay for longer or visit the wider Newmarket, Parnell and Grafton area for work, business, shopping and entertainment.

"The Domain is a much loved and well used park in a busy urban area. Parking is always in demand so it's about striking the right balance," says Mr Simpson.

Details on pay and display locations in the area, tariffs and maximum parking times can be found online, visit www.aucklandcity.govt.nz/parking

From Tuesday, 1 May parking restrictions on the roads bordering the Domain's playing field will change from P120 to P90, and from P180 to P120 on the road surrounding the sensory garden.

Pay and display changes are as follows:

Street Location From Tariff To Tariff Carlton Gore Road Between George and Kingdon streets P60 $2 P120 $1 Carlton Gore Road Outside the Auckland Domain P120 $2 P240 $1 Carlton Gore Road Between Park Ave and Grafton Rd P120 $2 P120 $1 George Street Between Morgan Street and Parnell Road P60 $2 P120 $1 George Street Between Carlton Gore and Morgan streets P120 $2 P240 $1 George Street Angle parking P120 $2 P480 $1 Grafton Road Outside and opposite the Southern Cross building P60 $2 P120 $1 Grafton Road East kerb between Park Rd and Khyber Pass P120 $2 P120 $1 Grafton Road West kerb between Grafton Bridge and Beckham Pl P120 $2 P120 $1 Grafton Road West kerb between Beckham Pl and Burton St P120 $2 P240 $1 Morgan Street All of P120 $2 P120 $1 Titoki Street East kerb opposite the Tennis Club P120 $2 P240 $1 Titoki Street West kerb P120 $2 P240 $1 Titoki Street East kerb between George St and Maunsell Rd P120 $2 P120 $1
