Funky Christchurch city has emerged out of the new rebuild programme and has plenty to keep you busy and entertained, whether you are a shopaholic, wild adventurer, history buff or a relaxed and tranquil seeker. Carnmore Hagley Park is the ideal place to base yourselves for exploring the multitude of things to see and do in Christchurch and Canterbury.
Hagley Park really is the heart of Christchurch and we are so delighted to be located on the western side of the Park on Riccarton Road which is the pathway into the vibrant suburb of Riccarton. Hagley Park is the largest urban open space in Christchurch at 165 hectares, and its wide-open spaces and mature woodlands are home to over 3000 trees.
The River Avon meanders through it, and it has two lakes – Victoria and Albert. There’s something for everyone at Hagley Park:
Walking, running & cycling paths
Tennis & netball courts
Football & rugby fields
Christchurch Botanic Gardens
Petanque & croquet
Hagley Park is the venue for all sorts of amazing events throughout the calendar year which are so well supported by both locals and visitors alike and include concerts, food and drinks fairs and events, garden shows, sporting competitions and so on.
