Denton Park is situated in the suburb of Hornby and located on the Main South Road just south of the Hornby Mall area. It extends to frontages on Chalmers Street and Kathleen Crescent.
Denton Park dates back to 1952, when the majority of the land was gifted to the local community for a recreational ground by the then landowner, Mr Stanley Denton. Today it is a recreation reserve managed by the Christchurch City Council comprising a total area of 7. 4 hectares.
