Neil was our very informative and friendly driver on our one hour trip around the gardens. Cherry blossom and magnolia trees were the highlight - was a great way for my elderly Mum to enjoy a Christchurch icon 😃
Really nice gardens to walk or run around. Easy to get to from the city centre. Probably better in summer when everything's in bloom, but I enjoyed it even in the middle of winter in the rain! The train seems a bit pointless as it's...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.
