This is a huge park space that has many purposes. It has a golf course in it, a walking track and is used for many events, buskers, noodle night markets, concerts and lantern festivals

this park surrounds the botanical gardens. You can spend hours walking around here, sitting next to the lake, having a picnic or sitting on a bench reading a book.

The park was at it's best with no wind and the sun shining for a beautiful morning walk. This is a must do if you are staying in Christchurch with kids cycling to school, people cycling to work and lots of dog walkers. Great to see it well used.

Very large, 150,000 hectares, open space within the Christchurch city. Diverse range of trees, shrubs and plants. Many sports venues - cricket, tennis, golf. Cycle paths & pedestrian paths. Open areas where open air concerts have been held. Huge range of bird life. A truly delightful, well maintained facility open to city residents and visitors.

One of the highlights of being in Christchurch is the beautiful botanic gardens. A fantastic range of plants and trees. Visit the cafe for a good cup of coffee and a sweet treat. Lots of space to relax.
