OK I admit I like Botanic gardens, so yes this does suit me.
However, A couple of hours wondering around these wonderfully maintained gardens and admiring the massive variety of trees and plants is a great way to unwind and relax.
Booked this as part of a combo package with Christchurch attractions and really enjoyed it. I’m not a massive flower person but the tour guide was so passionate about the one-hour tour it was hard not to enjoy. If you’re tight on time you could...More
You if enjoy trees or plants of any description, this is the place for you. Beautiful Magnolias and Rhododendrons were all in flower. The Blossom trees were just starting to blooms. There were plenty of good walking/wheelchair paths which sometimes meander along the River. Plenty...More

You can get to the car park off Armagh St near the start of Park Tce and the end of Rolleston Avenue. You can drive through the park passed the tennis courts on the right and on to the car park on the left under the trees near the children's playground which is on the other side of the pedestrian bridge over the Avon River. It is quite a big car park and during the week it is usually easy to find a car park sometimes on a nice sunny weekend the carpark fills up. If there are festivals it becomes impossible to get a park.
