Come and spend some time in Christchurch's tranquil inner-city sanctuary. It's a beautiful place for a stroll and we've got plenty of spots for a summer picnic under the trees.
COVID-19 update: The Botanic Gardens is closed
The Government is asking for everyone to stay at home. Their advice is that you can go for a walk or exercise outdoors for a short time, but to stick to simple walks or exercise spots close to home.
We’ve closed all of our Council facilities until further notice, to support the Government’s fight against COVID-19. This includes the Botanic Gardens.
The following are also closed:
- Public toilets.
- Playgrounds, play equipment or exercise equipment in parks.
- Car parks within parks.
- Visitor and information centres.
- The Spencer Park animal area and fenced dog parks.
- All Council-owned sports facilities
