About
Ferrymead Park features an early 1900s (Edwardian) township and the park has a variety of restored cottages plus a school house, church and businesses which reflect the period and allow visitors to experience life for the early residents of Christchurch including the smell of a coal range and the sounds of a tram rattling past the door.

A step back into history
Jan 2020 • Friends
We spent the morning wandering around the park taking in the various fascinating exhibits. These were restored cottages and shops, a huge collection of fire engines and a working print shop and model train layout. Volunteers staff the collections and are so willing to share their knowledge and passion. The tram trip goes round the site and ends up at a couple of old carriages made into baches. Good fun!

Genuine Kiwi experience
Dec 2019
This is a real deal volunteer run authentic working museum and restoration centre. So many different aspects from an incredible collection of vintage fire engines, to historic aircraft under restoration. A real trip down memory lane for anyone aged 50 or more and a real education for the kids. Great printing press experience and other educational stuff disguised as fun ! Well worth it.

FAMILY OUTING
Feb 2019 • Family
We went there as a family in February this year as a family and thought it was a very interesting place to visit. It is set up very well and the Displays were great. We went on both the Tram and Railcar. My only complaint was there was no place where you could buy food etc other than at the entrance and only had drinks and chips, we had a high tea which wasn’t cheap for a family. Other than that, I would suggest that they put on their web site there is no food stalls. There is plenty of places to have picnic if you brought your own food etc and several toilets. It takes around four hours minimum to visit. We would go there again but will bring our own food next time. Murray C

A real surprise
Feb 2019 • Couples
This Park was much bigger than I thought . and had a great variety of things to look at and experience, including museums. Go on a day when they have the steam train running (more expensive but good fun) and go to the old theatre and have devonshire tea while watching a short play

Great for...... errrr Heritage
May 2018 • Family
Great exhibits maintained by enthusiasts. Trains, Trams, telecommunications, post office, old shop, and of course the buildings. They hold a night marked with entertainment and food trucks on the evening of the first Saturday of every month. Well worth a visit.

Something for everyone... or most everyone at least
Dec 2018 • Family
We spent a lovely day walking around this heritage village and found plenty of variety to keep us entertained.
There is history, antiques in old houses, old cars, planes and trains as well as model railways. There’s a good little playground for little ones and plenty of open space for older kids to run around too. We weren’t there on steam train day, but I’ve heard that’s worth a visit too.
There are a few snacks and coffees for sale at the entrance, but you’d be better off packing a lunch if you plan to be there all day. Lots of nice spots for a picnic.
