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.
