  • In all of my life, I have been trying to find the best park I have pictured since I was young. Hagley Park met all of those requirements. It’s facilities are great for all in Christchurch. But the amount of trees... I was shocked. The amount of trees in the park was out of this world, making it look amazing for me
  • Its good to have the green space, but a large chunk is taken up with a golf course. And often used for outdoor mass events. Limited trees mostly around the edges. Much more worthwhile to visit the nearby Christchurch Botanic Gardens
