“Spent many a happy hour here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

When I lived in Christchurch, I spent many a happy hour walking, cycling and just sitting in these two parks. Every day brought a new experience whether it was visiting the botanical garden, walking around a lake, walking amongst the tree-lined perimeter walkways, or avoiding the pedestrians wandering aimlessly on the cycleways.
Although thousands of people use the parks each day, there are still places of solitude where you can just relax, think, meditate, or read a book - and forget that you are in the centre of a major city!

“Great place to get active!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

It's great to have this large an open park space in the city.
There's space for sport (rugby and golf) and it's a great place to run around. The exercise trail and equipment is well maintained and a great addition.
With the Botanic Gardens and cafe adjacent this park is also perfect for a more leisurely stroll.

“Lovely spot in the middle of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

This is a park that helps make Canterbury and Christchurch a nice place to visit and enjoy. It is nearly 6kms around the three parks that comprise Hagley, and lots of space to explore. The only negative it that successive municipal councils find reasons to erect a mishmash of ugly dwellings all over the park. Remember the "goose that laid the golden egg"......

“Great out door space”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

We regularly visit Hagley Park for a walk and some fresh air, it also has good cycle tracks. Lots of sports grounds also. So pritty in Spring and Autumn with the spring bulbs and beautiful autumn colours. Free for all to enjoy
