Ferrymead Historic Park

Year round

Inspired by the railway line installed in 1863, Ferrymead Park is an historic staple of Canterbury today – a place where history comes alive.

The Park features an early 1900s (Edwardian) township and has a variety of restored cottages plus a school house, church and businesses which reflect the period. Visitors can experience life for early residents of Christchurch including the smell of a coal range and the sounds of a tram rattling past the door.



Hāpai Access Card Holders: Adults $8.50, Seniors/Students $6.50, Child: $4.50. Essential companion as shown by the “+1” icon: free entry.
