“I love Hagley Park. It has been a big part of my life ever since I attended school in Christchurch. We walked through Little Hagley to get to school, I ran around North Hagley to get fit and we played hockey in South Hagley when it was still played on grass! To own a city pad with Hagley Park on its doorstep feels like I'm coming home - a massive green space in a vibrant city. ”
