This is a huge city park close to the city centre encompassing sports grounds, gardens and walking and cycling tracks. Many people use or pass through it every day. All cities need parks like this.

The natural areas around Christchurch were quite lovely...you'd forget that when you ventured out of the park, the downtown city was still pretty much in shambles.

I've visited here on a number of occasions throughout the summer months. There is always something happening from the Night Noodle Market to the beer festival. Great place for a Sunday stroll.

very nice playground for little children plus paddling pool... slightly older kids can go on the paddle boats on the Avon river.. Teens can go canoeing.. Mum & dads can coffee and eat while waiting...or go for a nice romantic stroll along the river bank.. Summer there are often bands playing among the trees

You can bike, run, walk your way around. With friends, kids, partners. Beautiful on a sunny day. You dont realise how far your walking as so relaxing.

Whenever I have visitors come and stay with me, this is the one place I will take them to. Everytime, the scenery never fails to delight me (and the visitor!). I love the vibrancy of the park in summer, with families all around. I love the beautiful autumn colours and watching the leaves fall during autumn...you get my drift. It's... More

A great place to stroll, run or bike and spend time with family and loved ones. Awesome sports fields and room for the annual Xmas concert in the park. Enjoyed weekly and Christchurch would not be the same without it.

This park is huge. So many people enjoying the outdoors either playing sports, socializing, walking, running, skateboarding or running. Safe, well lit on most of the footpaths at night. Well used by all ages for so many different activities day and night. Clean, well maintained - it's a gem.
