“An amazing place to walk around while in CHC.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014

We didn't spend nearly enough time walking around the Botanic Gardens. It is a sprawling park with distinct areas. Don't miss the heather gardens and the giant rhubarb.

“Wonderful trees”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

These gardens were planned during the very first years of the settlement of Christchurch. Lovely to walk round in the evening, with some magnificent trees (kauri, rimu and giant redwoods).

“A credit to Christchurch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

The gardens are a credit to all at Christchurch. We were there when the 3rd anniversary of the 2011 earthquake was taking place and it was a lovely setting amongst the beautiful trees, gardens, fountains and lawns. You cannot visit Christchurch without walking around these gardens.

“Well labelled trees”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

Expensive gardens with well labelled trees with the River Avon ( should it be renamed the Cam or Granta?) meandering through them.
