A stroll around South Hagley Park is always a pleasure, especially on a sunny Christchurch day.
Start: Hagley Oval car park, Riccarton Avenue, Central city.
Finish: Same as the starting point.
Time: One hour return.
Dogs: On leash on paths. Elsewhere, keep dogs under effective control.
Toilets: Located at the corner of Moorhouse and Hagley Avenue.
Access: Suitable for wheelchairs and strollers.
Starting from the Hagley Oval car park on Riccarton Avenue, follow the path northwest towards the Riccarton Road traffic lights and its group of mature oaks and elms. Turn south along Deans Avenue, a good choice if looking for autumn colour, and on to Moorhouse Avenue where spring daffodils flower en masse under deciduous European trees. Continue around to Hospital Corner and back to the car park.
