Your rating and impressions of this park will depend on your raison d'être là. For me it was a fluke discovery while going up the hills to check out the new snow. A pleasant little find, not far from the Dyers Pass road with access for walking and cycling activities, and a dedicated dog-walking area. This must certainly be a... More

A safe place for earthquake survivors, this park is really important to locals so go visit it and just sit and reflect and imagine the park as it was on 22/02/2011 with loads of survivors praying that their family and friends would walk out alive. Not many did, the CTV building did not have any survivors, but this is now... More

Vic Park is a great place for a families and couples, has a fantastic view and some great walks aswell. The playground is sufficient for children and the large lawn space is good for picnics and running about.

The park was obviously most beautiful before the earthquake disasters. The regeneration here is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Christchurch inhabitants. And, I am sure, in five years or so will be back even better, stronger and more beautiful than before.

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...

Pop up to Cashmere Hills behind Christchurch ,you can drive or catch a bus up to the Sign of Takaehe from the city. A walking track starts from here & mountain bike track too great out looks up the coast ,across Canterbury Plains & towards Alps ,over the city.

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

Although I have spent lots of time exploring the Port Hills - pre quake, this was my first visit to Victoria Park and was suggested to us by a local. 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
