“Just a typical park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

North Hagley Park is great to visit when there are events on, like big shows and food and wine events, but the rest of the time it's just a big park. The willow trees alongside the Avon River are really nice, and there are parts of the park that is great to walk through, but it's the neighbouring Botanic Gardens that I would recommend for picnics etc

“Oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

What a fantastic place for a city to have! Not really the tourist attraction but a great place to walk, think, relax, wander, wonder. A peaceful oasis in the middle of the city!

“Wonderful walking area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Great park to walk all or part of. Beautiful trees surround the streams. Will be great when park can return to its full potential post quake but certainly worth taking a picnic and spending time there now, or just filling in a spare hour or two.

“A fun morning at the markets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Fun family friendly markets. Great local crafts and food.
There was also good local entertainment.
You would only need 2 hours to enjoy the park.

“My favourite place to run”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

I run and bike through here. It offers various terrains for a morning run and you feel swallowed up in it although it is part of the centre of the city. Great access from motels/hotels in the CBD and Riccarton.
