Great scenery and a play ground for the younger ones. Lots of space to run around, or play a game of sports.

Enjoyed a nice afternoon walk just looking at the trees and flowers. Trees gave really good shade and the benches seemed strategically placed for the shade and pretty pictures :)

The park is a lovely place for a good day of wandering! We enjoyed the Rose Garden, the beautiful watergarden and the New Zealand Engrave. It's worth a few hours.

For years the botanic gardens in Christchurch have always been a tranquil oasis in the city. Despite earthquakes, rebuilding and general unrest the gardens are always a site to see. The various artworks, the water features, the hot houses, the cafe and the gardens just provide a relaxing spot to spend some time.

Was a lovely relaxing hour. So much beautiful flowers and trees. Very knowledgeable host who loved to share her love and passion for the gardens, we were on the 3.30pm tour the last one of the day and only ones on our tour , so it was a very up close personal tour where our host volunteered on many occasions...
