  • In the city centre, yet close to the prospect. Located on the main floor area of Canterbury ... As far as the sea and the other side looks good.

  • Great place to come and have a picnic/fish and chips with mates in the wood huts. Beautiful setting during sunset and amazing view of Christchurch. Gets a bit chilly during evening though. 
  • Of the city , especially at night when it's dark . Make sure you 'wrap up' with a coat though as it can get really cold up here in the winter ! 
  • Good place for a walk especially for.the dog for he gets to be out of leash. You get a good view of the city if you go through the woods.
  • It's the perfect place for a picnic or a walk or for a nice view of Chch.
  • The most amazingly friendly dog park. Go, even if you don't have a dog.
  • Picnic area, dog exercise area, walking tracks. Mountain biking, hilltop views.
  • Lots of great views while you are walking and lots of space around, I enjoy doing all the tracks - they also have a dog park up their too
