The park creates a big green space for the city and with the Avon river running through it, it has so much potential, but focus your time on the Botanic Gardens and the Canterbury museum also located there. The rest of the Hagley park was...More

An easy hour wandering through the parks on a spring day. No charges and free for all. If you are wandering through Christchurch take the time on a nice day.
