Hagley Park

Hagley Park Review

Hagley Park was developed by European settlers in the mid-1800s with imported plants given trial runs in what would become the Botanic Gardens. Now the 165 hectare park (407 acres), includes a golf course, sports fields, netball and tennis courts, cycling paths, walking and jogging tracks, and a 17-station fitness circuit. In spring you'll be treated to a magnificent blossom display from the flowering cherry trees and a host of golden daffodils. You can access the Park from most of its perimeter. The Botanic Gardens is near the middle, closest to the city center.
