    The park (including the botanic garden) is quite big and offers a variety of sports fields. In addition to that there are some pull up bars, parallel bars and monkey ladders for a good outdoor workout...  more »

    Great park to just be in. Has a tonne of fields where you can run , play sport, get some pars in golf or just enjoy a picnic. One great thing is that the botanical gardens is connected inside it, so anytime in spring or autumn its the place to be! Victoria lake is also embedded in it, a great place to chill out.by the water with ducks and swans hanging out, sometimes seagulls too!.

    Beautiful park we walked across the bridge from Botanical gardens, the Daffodil Woodlands were full of 3 different species of daffodils and snow drops. There are benches through out the park to seat on , most of the have memorial plaques dedicated to people.

    North Hagley Park is a beautiful park tucked in the heart of the city. It has a few amenities around like cafés, information site, tennis courts, etc. There are also many verieties of plants and trees. It's a must see if you're a nature person.
