As our hotel is within walking distance, we came to this playground twice. The first was on a Sunday afternoon and it was very busy with lots and lots of families. There were still enough space for everyone to play. On a Wednesday afternoon we came back and it was relative empty and our children were able to spend 2+ hours enjoying the grounds. The playground equipment are relatively new and clean.

It is also located along the creek so you can have a nice walk along the bank and what the punting boats travel by.

So many things for the children to do, from teeny tots to big adult kids ;)
There is also great food vendors there (I think only on the weekend) and free BBQ's too... If you are looking for somewhere to kill time in between naps, this is the playground for your family!

Always a favourite when my grandchildren visit. Suitable for all ages of "children". We love the flying fox and it always impresses me how well the children share & take turns. Variety of slides for different ages & stages. Very clean even at the end of the day however maintenance appears to have been neglected recently.

What a wonderful place with so much to do, lots of challenge and variety. Especially love the water spaces. Wish the toilets were not so far from the playground.

A jewel in the city's crown and a great afternoon for primary aged kids. Worth the detour if you are passing through Christchurch.

Great place for kids during the day. Even better place for adults to play once their kids are in bed.
Great design to bring everyone together for play & fun.
