Hagely Park is a place where I’ve walked, biked and just generally loved spending time in... you can watch sport on a saturday, walk, run, do exercise on the outdoor equipment, just sit on a picnic blanket and read your book in the fresh air...More

This is a very pleasant park to walk in and it contains a very beautiful botanical garden. There is a small river flowing through the park with ducks that adds to the ambiance.

A treasure in the heart of a busy city. So nice to sit in the cool shade after a busy day of site seeing. Plants and trees are all labeled for those who don’t know the varieties. Loved this park!

This is a very large park leading from the suburbs right to the city. It is very attractive and spacious with a wide variety of amenities, including children's pools and sporting facilities. Watch out for cyclists and people using scooters on the paths!

Great place for a walk and to relax while out and about in the city. Recommend visiting the botanic gardens and seeing the Peacock Fountain, as they are located in the area too.
