A delightful find. This quarry converted to a park has historical signage, easy walk tracks, and from the top the views of the Southern Alps are spectacular. Highly recommended. Just watch out for the doggie poo. Owners need to clean up after their mutts.

I read on the website that there were international gardens to walk through, but when I got there, it was just empty paddocks with not much on it. I was not particularly impressed at all.

This is a great unknown place... where you can see what it can be done with a old unsed quarry. Great job in restoring nature back in the place! Nice walks, great for a afternoon walk, or a morning run. In the back of the...More

Although the promised "sister city" garden complex has't eventuated due to the EQs, the extensive plantings of cherry trees are well worth a visit in September. Good picnic facilities, bookable by groups and plenty of space for dogs & runners. I always enjoy the short...More

Visiting Christchurch for a few days and thought some sunshine and a walk might help shake the jet lag. Exceeded expectations: stunning views of the mountains from the Rim Walk, really friendly fellow walkers and delicious lunch from Coffee Vice airstream type trailer. Lattes, pop,...More

Not a bad place for a picnic and a wander. Not really a tourist spot really but nice enough on a warm day.

This park seems to cater for everyone who enjoys the outdoors. Walkers, runners, Mt Bikers and dog walkers. Very scenic, very peaceful and it has a very cool looking coffee trailer that also does cold drinks and some food. I must say the coffee was...More

“Quarry Walk” I think this park is amazing because it has such a variety of things to do and see and has been a very important contributor to the life of Christchurch. It's an old quarry where they mined Halswell Quarry Stone from about 1850....More
