  • The park is beautiful and very well kept, great for everyone. For picnics, exercise, walking the dog and big events. Definitely worth a day off exploring.  more »
  • A massive and beautiful park right in the middle of Christchurch...and cricket fans have to visit the Hagley Oval in the southern part of Hagley Park.  more »
  • Lovely park with the river running through it, a small lake where locals sail their model yachts, and lots of open spaces for dog-walkers, ball games etc. No charge for entry.  more »
