caravan park

Spectrum visits a Caravan Park on the edge of the Waimakariri river, and talks to residents about garden gnomes, cacti, and life.

Riverlands Park, on the edge of Christchurch, is a classic New Zealand motel and holiday Park, and home to over 140 permanent residents whose caravans and units are their homes.

Come spring, the bulbs pop up and the tiny garden plots come to life after the long winter. Residents share their garden tips and stories and they swear by the sense of community that such a lifestyle offers.
