Always love a drive up to Victoria Park. Great views of the city, from the sea in the east, round to the Kaikoura’s and follow the Alps down as far as the eye can see. Plenty of lovely bush walks, great play area for the kids and a dog park. One of our go to with visitors.

We enjoyed our relaxing walk through the park. We were accompanied by a friend and his dog. The dog stopped to read many messages left by other dogs. A dog walker's haven. Nice playground for kiks and even adult-kids.

So close to the city but feels so far away. Not only is there a multitude of walkways to choose from, there are pinic areas, playground, toilet facilities and you can take your dogs as long as they are on a lead. We did the walk up too the Sign Of The Kiwi and back down.

You can easily spend a few hours hiking, strolling with the fam and enjoying the views at the Victoria Park. For those looking for a top-notch sunset and night views, this is the place to go in Chch. You can hike and bike here also or participate in one of the many family events held here.
Bus or drive, there are parking areas!

This lookout is very near to Victoria Park, off Takahe Drive. It offers scenic view of Cashmere Hill and City view.
Just a short walk off the main road

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 is a lovely tree top resting point with glimpses of Christchurch. I also recommend a drive up to Kiwi Point which has spectacular views.

This park is amazing. Tonnes of walkways of all sorts, dog park, tracks(some pram friendly, some not!). Then there's that amazing long slide! One of a kind in chch that's for sure. The views make you feel on top of the world!

BY bus no 12 from Designer Cottage B&B (Recommended by the host). Walk from the Sign of Takehe to Victoria Park. The view was just stunning. Best time is morning or sunset.

Googled nice walks in Chch and this came up. Drove there just as the sun was setting and had the whole thing pretty much to myself. Great spot for a quiet moment of reflection and to watch the world go by. Head up to the top of the children's slide for the best view!

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 the memorial a good place to reflect on the sanctity of life. Beautiful flowers & shrubs. Walks of varying lengths, plenty of parking areas.
