It's so close to where I'm now living. I love it! Sometimes I walk the whole park and other times we just stroll and look at flowers at the botanic gardens! There's a fitness trail too!

A jewel in the centre of the city. Good for walking, biking, commuting, golfing, whatever. Also the location for many popular events and festivalsChristchurch is very fortunate to have such a large park at its centre.

Anyone visiting Christchurch should at least pop around Hagley park. It is a great example of why Christchurch truly is the garden city. In my opinion there is no need to spend $100 on a tour when all you need to do is find a spot with a picnic and enjoy watching the world go by!

Lots of fun exploring all the different fun places in Hagley Park. Lovely wee playground, great little paddling area, beautiful walks and a fab cafe in the middle. Recommend going when the Feb festivals are on as there is heaps of great entertainment like dancers, magicians, jugglers and a variety of other shows in the park.

I took my son to the cricket ad before hand went round to the botanical gardens to the large white restaurant for lunch. A really nice day out. Can't remember who won the cricket.

The most beautiful Park for walking at anytime of the year. The beautiful old trees are always changing with the seasons, always something different to see. One can always walk through our magnificent Botanic Gardens from Hagley Park, enjoy!
