We loved walking through these extensive gardens. There are beautiful, trees, shrubs, flower beds (shame the dahlias were just going over), fountains... We could have spent much longer there. There is a guided tour on a little train if you want to learn more.

One of my favourite spots in all of Christchurch. I enjoy many a lazy day just walking through and enjoying the beauty of it all. Stunning and well worth a visit if you have sometime to kill. Lovely......

It was a lovely day and perfect for wandering around exploring. Plenty of signage so you could find your way around.

Didn't like the constant trucks which were driving around. We were passed regularly by work trucks which seemed to be rattling around all the time and showering everyone with dust.

We were disappointed by the coffee from the stand by the children's play area, very weak and milky.

The Gardens are extensive, well looked after and attractively presented. Situated just by the town centre and providing a relief from the devastation created by the earthquake which has wrecked most of the town centre buildings
