Hagley Park features 165 hectares of wide open green spaces and mature woodlands, making it the go-to place to relax and unwind and suck in the fresh air during your trip to Christchurch.
Hagley Park borders the Avon River and Christchurch Botanic Gardens, combining to make the most impressive park area in New Zealand. It has been at the heart of Christchurch since the 1850s, during which time it was set aside for recreation and enjoyment for locals.
Today, Hagley Park is the most popular place in Christchurch to walk, run and cycle. The park is divided into North and South Hagley Parks and features cycle tracks and pathways through and around the park. Hagley Park also features netball courts, a golf course as well as football and rugby pitches. The park also hosts circuses and open-air concerts throughout the year.
You can gain access to and exit Hagley Park anywhere around the perimeter.
