Information! The Ashburton Domain is a 37.54 hectare park. The Ashburton Domain is often referred to as the "jewel in the crown." Over the years, since the domain began in 1883, a number of organizations and groups have helped with its development. This 37.54 hectare park is a important open space area within walking distance from the main area of Ashburton. The Domain also hosts many sports like cricket, hockey and soccer. Collections of azaleas, camellias and other shrubs have been added to the mature trees. The domain has a variety of colourful gardens and is a favorite picnic spot with local families.
