Not only does Hagley Park have the Avon River flowing through it, it can also boast Victoria Lake. A peaceful place to walk around with plenty of areas to rest and enjoy the water views and to watch the world and people go by.

Best time to visit is Wednesday or Saturday afternoons when the Christchurch Model Yacht Club meets for regattas. It's a serious business as the yachts race to strict rules. It's like the America's Cup in miniature. The yachties are a friendly bunch. Chat to them...More
