Well worth the drive and visit. The people who work there an d those in character of the era were knowledgeable and interactive. Was great to see ride the steam locomotive. Parking was the biggest issue, but enjoyed the walk to the entry. Well worth visiting if you are in Christchurch…

We went with three young children on a bleak winter's day, and we and the children had an enjoyable couple of hours.

We were impressed with how well-kept the facility is and with how attractive the park is generally (the backdrop of the Port Hills is lovely). We could have spent longer there, and we hope to return.…
