Taking the road into the park, drive to one of the carparks and start a walk on the Harry Ell track. This track gradually climbs up to the Sign of the Kiwi and is a well formed path with peeps of the view out to the city as well as tree lined sections. At the top you can then continue... More

Pick your day - warm and sunny - you don't want a windy day up there. Then head up with a picnic and enjoy the views. Take a walk around the tracks. It's a beautiful place to spend some time. Cool playground and a good place to take dogs!

Heaps of open space, lots of places to picnic. There are several good walks nearby too. It's at the top of the port hills so may get a bit windy.

A great park in the Port Hills overlooking the city of Christchurch and the sea, so a fine vantage point for views and photos. Walking and cycling seem to be the other main activites and it is also a fine setting for those.

If you like sweet mountain bike trails and ripping descents, Vic Park is for you. There's even trails for the downhiller! But dont worry, if you're a beginner, there's tracks for you too. Wish there was a gondola!

I would definitely recommend a visit to Victoria park while in Christchurch - there is so much to do! Whether you enjoy walking/ running/ biking or motorbiking there are a number of tracks for you to take advantage of! There are also a number of play and picnic areas if you're looking for somewhere to take the kids!
