  • 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. 
  • 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.

  • 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
