As this is a huge park, we only had time to see a very small part of it and in their Winter too. Lots of lovely, big mature trees and the River Avon runs through it. Needs time or several visits to really do it justice. Great to walk through and it would be very attractive in the Spring and... More

Well-maintained, large city park in Christchurch. Wonderful to walk through the park and watch rugby and cricket games, wander the botanical gardens, marvel at the huge trees.

It is a lovely park, free to enter and you can park there for 3 hours. Actually 3 hours is not enough, it's a good day out providing the weather is pleasant.You can watch men racing their model sail boats, they take it quite seriously ( or at least they seem too ) Fantastic trees of many shapes and sizes....

We had a long stroll through the park to get rid of our jet-lag, passing along the Avon river, admiring the tall trees and the endless grassy plains. Very relaxing!

An excellent resource for Christchurch. It was well utilised by the local and visitors alike. The golf course is 9 holes and was incorporated as part of a walk for people crossing the park.

We walked here to get the kinks out from a long set of flights and Hagley Park is really nice. Especially since it is free. The river and the flower beds are a great start, or finish, to any trip.
