Popular parks

Christchurch has a range of parks providing both recreational and ecological opportunities.

Pathway at Bexley Wetland

The Christchurch City Council works in conjunction with other organisations and the community to provide facilities for recreational purposes, and to enhance our environment. As these areas are restored they provide important habitat and food sources for our native wildlife.

We have wonderful parks with plenty of places for exploring, walking, cycling and picnics.

The coastline has much to offer both for recreational activities and for our wildlife.

We have wetland parks offering a number of easy walkways and viewing areas, with opportunities to see many bird species and plant communities.

Botanic Gardens at springtime.

The Port Hills are one of the best-loved landscapes of Christchurch. The tussock grasslands and rugged rock out-crops contrast with the flatness of the Canterbury Plains.

The Parks A-Z provides information about the parks maintained by the Christchurch City Council.
