Picnic under the trees
Each of the parks along the Cooks River have something a little different to offer in addition to the calming views of the river. Lees Park is loved by the residents of Canterbury, and the surrounds for its cute children's park, wide sports fields and the relative quiet compared to other parks of its kind along the Cooks River.



Lees Park's central feature is its sports field, but around the perimeter are other features that make the park worth a visit. There is a cute children's playground in one corner with a number of benches beside it allowing parents to sit comfortably while children play.

Kids often use the sports field to kick a ball around and there are also seats on the sidelines for parents minding their kids.



Hidden off to one side there is a nice space for lunch. There are a few picnic tables and two barbecues, both under attractive shady trees. This is perhaps the best feature of the park - and the least obvious - as this area is not on clear view from the popular river side walking paths.

Unlike many of the parks along the Cooks River there are toilet facilities at this park, making it a great place to spend more time at or pop into when doing a longer walk or bike ride.

Lees Park is also home to a number of well-kept tennis courts that are available for booking.
