Little Hagley Park Walk

This short but attractive river side walk is just a stone's throw from North Hagley Park.

COVID-19 update on parks and tracks

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, and to stick to simple walks or exercise spots close to home. 

When you are out, you must stay two metres away from anyone who is not in your household.

Description:

Starting at the corner of Harper Ave and Fendalton Road, follow the meandering river downstream and enjoy a scenery that changes dramatically depending on the season.

Visit in autumn to see golden leaves drift lazily from trees and return in spring for the incredible sight of daffodils and bluebells sprinkled across the grass as far as the eye can see.

For something a little different, detour through Millbrook Reserve via the historic Helmores Lane Bridge and re-join the park by crossing back over the footbridge on Carlton Mill Road.
