Even though construction all around the outside of the park is making it near impossible to get to(nothing unusual for chch) the playground is still a perfect place to take the kids and let them go wild for an hour!

I don't say lightly that this really could be one of the best free children's playgrounds in the world, similarly good is the playground in the Darling Quarter, Sydney. Water play (swimmers great, but even if you don't have them there are water features where...More

This is a very cool place to spend time with kids. Lots of play structures, including a fun zipline! My 8 year old loved it.

What a bonus to have this in the city for parents and kids. An amazing playground but very busy and good picnic area with BBQs.

Brilliant playground not far from the city centre. It's a big area but very busy, and with no fences you'll need to keep an eye on younger kids.

We had the most amazing time here, so much excitement for the kids. Spent hours enjoying the different elements, the climbing, the swinging, the playing. Great for primary aged kids.

Fun playground in excellent shape. Better for older kids- 10+ otherwise need close supervision. Nice spots for picnic lunch and they also have a public BBQ so you can grill. Easily could spend several hours there, bring sunblock if sunny!

This park is fantastic all year round, however there is no coverage if it's raining. Wrap up warm if it's cold - I was freezing the other day but my kids were running round in shorts and tshirts and having a ball!! Don't... More
