  • Nice been public space. Large area which has a lot of events. Has a golf course on our as well which I think detracts from it a bit. Has the botanic gardens which are very nice. Cool ducks
  • Relatively large park with botanic garden. Clean and tidy. Big open grass field where they do rugby practice. They warn for golf balls, so watch out.
  • So close to home and the city. Plenty of room and good walking paths. A brilliant place for a picnic and walk with your children.
  • I love this place! Large, open spaces. Trees. A delightful pond. A great place for a walk or a run.
  • Hagley Park is such an awesome asset to the city - I bike through it every day, and it's such a nice break away from vehicle noises and crowds. I love the big events that are held here (especially that Lantern Festival - dammmnnnn that looks/sounds/smells awesome).
