Albany Lakes Civic Park is a public park located in Albany, Auckland, New Zealand. It is adjacent to the Westfield Albany shopping mall, in the centre of a new commercial/town centre area that is being developed.

The park comprises two artificial lakes that serve both as landscape features and stormwater ponds. The lakes were created in the late 2000s,[1] though the park took somewhat longer to finish, and much of the new vegetation is still in the process of growing in as of 2010.

Providing an assembly/grassland area allowing up to 10,000 people to the north of the lakes, the park was designated as one of the 'fan zones' for the Rugby World Cup 2011.[2]
