After we walked through through the glorious gardens, we booked ourselves on a guided tour of the gardens- on an open cart. The guide was polite, knowledgeable and extremely obliging. We learnt so much about the botanical history of Christchurch as well as the impact...More
Lots of flowers varieties, huge trees. Well kept a pleasure to visit. The little train that takes you around the park if one does not wish or could not walk the park. Although a little expensive is well worth it.

At the end of the day, we were looking for something to do so we headed for the botanic gardens, what a triumph. Such a well kept and loved space it was truly a glorious walk, and the evening sun came out especially.
I love this garden. Well maintained with fresh flowers despite having so much foot traffic daily. Great place to pose and take photos of flowers. Also, a great place for a walk and to clear your mind however, it is busy.

You can get to the car park off Armagh St near the start of Park Tce and the end of Rolleston Avenue. You can drive through the park passed the tennis courts on the right and on to the car park on the left under the trees near the children's playground which is on the other side of the pedestrian bridge over the Avon River. It is quite a big car park and during the week it is usually easy to find a car park sometimes on a nice sunny weekend the carpark fills up. If there are festivals it becomes impossible to get a park.
