The Ashburton Domain is a wonderful place to walk, run, meander or enjoy a picnic meal. Every season is different and special. Very well looked after and very peaceful. Love taking photos there in the different seasons - they are all good.

The Asburton Domain has many things to see and enjoy. Water features full of ducks, an aviary unfortunately a bit run down, splendid trees over one hundred years old and beautiful flowers. A lovely walk on a sunny day
