This park ... designed in part by the children of the city ... is a great playground where kids can learn while playing. Lucky kids who live nearby!

This playground is great for adults to enjoy with younger family members as there is lots for everyone to do. Recommend catching the bus though as parking is very limited.

Great place to spend evening with kids, even if they are teenagers. Some of the section ie the water works are fascinating, and our teenager kids love them. Parking within the park is free, for up to 120 minutes.

A really great place to take the children. Plenty for them to do and have fun on, and coffee kiosks for the big kids. Whilst it is always crowded, its so great to see Christchurch rising up from the rubble and offering activities like this....More

Apologies for the slow reply - anything from an hour to a half day if you take a picnic. There are barbecues you can use beside the playground and great places beside the playground on the riverbank to sit.
