  • 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
  • Great for mountain biking and walking. MTB trails are rated intermediate and up, but aren't as intimidating as they look!
  • 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
  • It's the perfect place for a picnic or a walk or for a nice view of Chch.
