Halswell Quarry Park

Halswell Quarry is a unique park with a combination of recreational walks, historic sites and botanical collections. Important historical buildings from the quarryman's days have been preserved. The once noisy rock face is now a quiet amphitheatre facing onto parkland with short walks and wetland areas.
There is excellent car parking, toilets, picnic areas and a visitor centre. A walk goes around the dramatic quarry face and there is a network of walking trails throughout the reserve.
Six individual areas have been developed to represent the special character and beauty of Christchurch's Sister Cities. Volunteers such as local residents and community groups assist with native planting in the parks conservation area.
The Quarry combines the rugged landscape of Christchurch's Port Hills with the open space and rural character of the south west of Christchurch.
