Great place to come and have a picnic/fish and chips with mates in the wood huts. Beautiful setting during sunset and amazing view of Christchurch. Gets a bit chilly during evening though.

Of the city , especially at night when it's dark . Make sure you 'wrap up' with a coat though as it can get really cold up here in the winter !

Nice view but nothing was open, except the playground. The buildings there look abandoned and derelict.

We had a family picnic here, grandchildren, parents & grandparents. Nice sheltered spot with tables. Plenty of bush walks and a good slide etc for kids to play on. Awesome views over the city.

We headed up to Victoria Park for a morning hike on a fresh autumn Saturday. Parking was plentiful and the paths well marked for the most part (we got a bit confused where the walking track intersected the mountain bike trails but quickly found the correct trail). Harry Ell is my favourite trail and there were plenty of others making... More

This park is on the way up to Dyers Pass. The park is big and a great place for families. If you don't have kids then you will find this place a bit boring as there is nothing to do up here. The parking space is huge and watch out for cyclists as they use the paths.
