Topic: Hagley Park - Christchurch Park

Topic type:

Located in the central city, Hagley Park is formed of North and South Hagley Park, separated by Riccarton Avenue. Visitors can enter anywhere around the perimeter of the park.

Hagley Park has been at the heart of Christchurch since the 1850s and is today the most significant central city park. It offers a diverse range of entertainment and recreational facilities close to the city centre.

It is renowned for its extensive area of 165 hectares (407 acres), its wide-open spaces and mature woodlands. The park is a major sporting and cultural focal point with netball courts, a golf course, soccer and rugby pitches.

Two major avenues subdivide the park into three units. The northern unit is Little Hagley Park (6.96 hectares), with North Hagley Park (87.17 hectares) lying to the south of Harper Avenue. South Hagley Park (70.507 hectares) lies to the south of North Hagley Park, separated by Riccarton Avenue.

Cycle tracks and pathways go through and around the park allowing you to enter and exit around its perimeter

Christchurch Hospital, Christchurch Botanic Gardens, the Canterbury Museum and Christs College all touch the edge of Hagley Park.
