This walk is quite busy and used by dog walkers and baby in trolleys. It’s well maintained and nice combination with open spaces overlooking the old quarry and lush bush that provide some shade. Nice short but sweet walk with the dog! https://ccc.govt.nz/parks-and-gardens/explore-parks/port-hills/halswell-quarry/halswell-quarry-walks

Easy loop walk with information panels and nice views over Christchurch & beyond. Took about 20-25mins. Dogs allowed on a lead.

Nice easy walk with beautiful views and you always encounter friendly chch locals and their dogs. Best at sunrise or sunset as it’s very pretty but is also really nice on a hot day in the afternoon. Coffee carts sometimes come to the car park in weekends.

Quite a short walk but it's the perfect length and difficulty to walk my small dogs. And it's a nice walk to do on a sunny day if you want to see a view of Christchurch

It was amazing. We went up the hill and saw the whole picture of the town. There are alternative routes could be chosen. Highly recommend!

Great view of Christchurch... more of a hilly walk than a hike.

A really pretty short walk. On a clear day the views of the southern alps are great.
