Christchurch is the most English city in New Zealand and its second largest. Stretching over 500 acres, Hagley Park is a focal point
for the city and has been since as far back as the 1850's, helping give the city its nickname of "The Garden City". With a population of over 350,000 Christchurch is the international gateway to the South
Island. Located on the east coast of the South Island, it is a place where its residents enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle amidst a natural environment known for its natural beauty. A growing
cosmopolitan ambience adds a touch of excitement without overt flashiness. Christchurch suffered a massive earthquake in February 2011 and they are still in the process of rebuilding.
