A large expanse

A large park in, almost, the centre of Christchurch. Two lakes, plenty of wildlife and sporting facilities.

An interesting place to walk through although certain paths do require you to be on the lookout for errant golf balls! Remember to walk on the left!

Summertimes free "music in the park" are a great way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon. Good bands. Take a picnic and have a wander around the park which is looking splendid at the moment. Parking can be a pain though. Its close to the museum.

It is composed of around 500 acres divided into various well tended sports grounds, a playground and the botanical gardens.

Great place for a run, a picnic, or just to rest your legs after walking about the city. Half the size of New York's Central Park, Hagley is a lively and lovely oasis in the city. Good place to cool down in the summer when temperatures tend to get way high.
