“Great to see that even after the earthquake, this garden is still beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Loved the tulips that were all in full bloom. It's great to see that most of the Botanic Gardens survived the earthquake. The spring flowers were magnificent and the cherry blossoms were awesome!

“Stretch your legs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

A walk around the gardens and the whimsical sculptures was just the ticket for a relaxing day. If you are inclined the Punting on the Avon is a fun little excursion too.

“Survived the earthquake, now a peaceful haven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Colour galore everywhere plus old stately trees that must have absorbed the quakes because they remained standing when the buildings collapsed. This place was beautiful. Best part of CHCH. So glad we saw it in the Spring, it was gorgeous.
