"Inspired by the railway line installed in 1863, Ferrymead park is a historic staple of Canterbury today – a place where history comes alive and you have the opportunity to explore the lives of past pioneers transporting goods over the Bridle Path and punters crossing the river to Christchurch. Established on the park are restored cottages, school houses–even a church and many minor businesses that give you a taste of what life was like in the early 1900s Edwardian township.Ferrymead is incredibly favored by many, including families looking for a day adventure, schools, youth group socials, adults looking for a little history and more – the park can be enjoyed by all. There are exhibitions to be toured and restored displays and collections that are open for viewing – so get right on the Ferrymead train! We would love to have you visit."
