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 ye olde step back through time with houses, shops and exhibitions to look at. Cheaper to visit on a non-event day but event does have more things for the kids like bouncy castles and trains. The steam train one every month is good I hear.

Called in here on a bit of a whim and had a really interesting time. Unfortunately our schedule meant we couldn't stay longer but we will try to visit again on a steam Sunday (2nd in the month) when we are next in NZ. Fascinating exhibits and friendly, knowledgeable volunteers.

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!

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.

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

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
