  • A short walk from the last bus stop up Cashmere Hill, is Victoria Park, with its grand view of Ch-ch and its walks, one dedicated to Harry Ell, the chap who opened up the hills to the people of Ch-ch. 
  • Late in the evening, I visit the Christchurch City was so beautiful in the expanse. New Zealand's second-largest city, even though movement see the city come at a glance

  • Great for mountain biking and walking. MTB trails are rated intermediate and up, but aren't as intimidating as they look! You get a good view of the city if you go through the woods.

  • One of my favorites parks in town. Plenty of space to do what ever you want. You can fly drones in here as long they are under 1.5kg and not above people. Also they have awesome views and is home of the best bike tracks in town

  • 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.
  • Great outdoors place for activities. I run and bike and do orienteering and it's good
