It's a beautiful park for a long walk or even for just a short visit. I bet you will come back multiple times like I did. It's very tempting for nature lovers. I am looking forward to returning again to this beautiful park. They also have space allocated for events such as food festival and cricket tournaments. I didn't have... More

Great place for a run, a picnic, or just to rest your legs after walking about the city. Half the size of New York's Central Park, Hagley is a lively and lovely oasis in the city. Good place to cool down in the summer when temperatures tend to get way high.

We stayed at a hotel nearby so it was very close for us, this is so large that we did not have time to fully explore. Would certainly visit this park again

Described as one of the biggest inner city parks in the world this has a lot going on within its green expanse. There is the Hagley 18 hole golf course. The wonderful Botanic Gardens. There are sports pitches of most types imaginable. There are miles of jogging paths. Glades of trees providing lovely shaded picnic spots and two lakes. A... More

If you visit Christchurch you should go to this park. Covering quite a distance the park is great for a stroll, a run or cycling. From the Doubletree Hilton to city centre is about a half an hour walk which I was hesitating about at first but after the first 5 minutes I was thoroughly enjoying the walk. Lots of... More

Did the Hagley parkrun here on a Saturday morning, it was colder than I expected on a summer day, but the park and run were both very nice.

A visit this week reminded me of how very lucky we are to have this magnificent park only a few kms from home and the foresight of our forefathers was amazing in providing Hagley Park for all residents and our many visitors to our city. The choices for exercise, the trees and excellent flower beds , Music , the Avon... More

We entered Hagley Park and Botanical gardens across the street from our hotel - the George. There was a beautiful little river than ran along the side of the park and were were immediately taken by how the water and how clean it was. Not only was the water crystal clear but the bottom was teaming with vibrant green algae... More

Right next to the Canterbury Museum entrance. Had a beautiful stroll through, saw a family off ducks with ducklings which was cute. Amazing plant life and different gardens (it's connected to the Botanical gardens). Loved the differing street lamps back on the main road from around the world.
