About Ashburton Domain

The Domain is located within walking distance from the Ashburton town centre and most of our schools.

A wide range of sports are played at the domain, including cricket, football, bowls, tennis, hockey and croquet all being played. 

For the children we have a paddling pool which is open during the warmer months. The paddling pool is covered with a shade sail to protect from the harsh summer sun.  Next to the paddling pool is a small playground for pre-schoolers.  We also have a track which can be used by small children learning to ride their bikes or older children on skateboards or roller skates.

The Ashburton Domain also boasts a flagship playground with modern state of the art equipment alongside children's favourites such as slides and swings. 

For the people who want a more energetic lifestyle there is also a fitness track around the domain with set exercises at different points.

We are able to cater for most events big or small. If all you want to do is relax and unwind, we have a beautiful rose garden which is often used for wedding ceremonies; the Domain also has many mature exotic trees some planted to mark extraordinary people or a time in history.  Our flower beds are always worth a visit with bedding plants planted for the spring and summer colours.  We also have an aviary with numerous birds on show.

The Domain also has a designated area for picnics with two barbecues and a kiosk offering hot water, this area can be hired for $30 per day.
