What a lovely place for a quiet stroll. Trees and plantings were beautiful. My daughter loved watching the ducks in the ponds.

“Beautiful, tranquil gardens”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

At least the plants weren't affected by the earthquakes. We had a lovely afternoon's stroll through them while we were in Christchurch. I feel so sorry for its inhabitants - so many houses empty and shored up and the centre buildings either demolished or condemned.

“Beautiful! Well worth a visit.”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

In close proximity to the Christchurch Museum (right next door), these gardens are stunning. We were there in the autumn but still the rose garden blooms were abundant. The gardens are well planned and a thoroughly pleasant hour or two can be spent here. The trees are just stunning.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

It is so nice to see something so alive and vibrant in a city that is still a number of years away from getting back to its prime. Perfectly manicured it is a nice escape from the noise of construction sites.
