Get the kids outdoors and have fun at our playground and paddling pool.

Children's playground

The children's playground and paddling pool are a popular part of the Botanic Gardens and a great place to entertain the kids.

You'll find the play area near the Armagh Street footbridge off the car park.

Pack a picnic and head down for a splash.

The Botanic Gardens paddling pool, along with the rest of Christchurch's paddling pools, will be open from Saturday 18 November 2017 until Saturday 31 March 2018.
