A great place for a run, walk or picnic with the family. I went for a run around the park yesterday and other than having to cross a busy road twice if you want to run around the whole park it is really enjoyable. Options of tarmac, grass or gravel. Under trees or in the sun. A great green space.

Spend an hour or two or all day, in this wonderful place. There is lovely walks right around the park for the whole family to enjoy. Take the bikes down and enjoy cycling right around Hagley park, even as a family couple or by yourself there is something for everyone to enjoy about Hagley park.

Really enjoyed taking our family on bikes, and some of us walking, through the beautiful gardens and large grass areas of the botanical gardens in Hagley Park. The family had a great time in the canoes on hire from the boat sheds. All of this just a 20 minute walk from our the Ashleigh Court Motel or 5 minutes by... More

The Hagley park is a place no one would miss if in Christchurch. There's always something to do there, picnics and bbqs in summer months and also just before and after, walks, jogs, strolls, cricket etc

Growing up in the Garden City of Christchurch I had spent mean an hour playing both school boy and senior club Rugby or running around both North and South Hagley parks on a Wednesday as part of my school PE programme. With the passing of the years I have watched and enjoyed my own children and grandchildren playing their respective... More

Being able to walk to the park from our motel was a bonus especially being able to walk the dog. We spent 4 days in Christchurch and each day had the opportunity to see a different part of the park. A visit to the Hadley Staduim was worthwhile.

Hagley Park offers so many relaxation 'activities'...from a stroll through the Gardens to another along the Avon Riverbanks, cafes to try, and quite possibly the most friendly people one could meet..CANTABRIANs. There is a lot of English/European greenery, many labelled for you to learn about. most walkways sealed, some are gravelled. It is definitely falt, and pushchair, and children friendly.... More

This is definitely on my agenda when I visit Christchurch. Whether I am strolling by myself or in the playground with the grandchildren this is a must. On one side there is a playground for kids that even has a pool for the summertime time and many parents bring chairs, blankets and picnic baskets for the day. Exploring the new... More

Lovely park with plenty of areas to sit and have a picnic lunch. We normally like to do the botanical gardens followed by the museum for a small fee. Could spend all day in the gardens, absolutely beautiful.
