Cornwall Park 和 One Tree Hill Domain – 一树山公园

Cornwall Park 和 One Tree Hill Domain – 一树山公园 说起Cornwall Park和一树山domain,我和derek对它还真是情有独钟呢。它位于新西兰Auckland市的中心地带,据说是世界上最大的市中心公园。它由面积较小的一树山Domain和更大的Cornwall Park两部分组成,总占地面积220公顷,从卫星图看,它真像个绿色的乌龟。一树山海拔182米,有三个明显的火山口,山顶有"奥克兰之父"Sir John Logan Campbell 的墓冢和一个高高的方尖碑,碑前是一个毛利勇士的青铜塑像。站在山顶可以365度全方位俯瞰奥克兰。山顶上原有一棵大松树,2000年10月26日,奥克兰市政厅将这棵树砍伐了,原因是为防止大风刮倒大树伤及游人,直到今天还没有栽种任何树木,故现在有人称之为"No Tree Hill"。
