The location means that it is often sheltered from any heavy winds yet still provides a lovely park like setting overlooking the Canterbury Plains and Christchurch City. The park leads to various tracks and walkways for those wishing some form of exercise and also provides shelters from sun and rain and several picnic areas. A slide and some playground equipment...

I always organise a walk at Victoria Park whenever I visit NZ. This time I did part of the Tawhairaunui Trail starting near the visitor centre. There are public toliets and a water drinking fountain nearby, plus a fabulous children's palyground. I chose a short 15 mintue walk that ends near the picturesque dog exercise park with bay views. There... More

The park offers great views of the city and lots of walking tracks as well as a memorial to the 19th Infantry Battalion . There's a nice picnic table near... More

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!
