Consultation has begun on whether the Reserve Act classification on Kyle Park should be changed to allow new community facilities to be built on the site.
Christchurch City Council wants to use part of Kyle Park to build the new Hornby library, customer services and leisure centre.
However, the Kyle Park Management Plan and the reserve classification of the park need to change before any development can occur there.
The changes, if approved, will only apply to the north-east corner of the park, adjacent to Waterloo Road and Smarts Road.
The public have until Monday 15 April to make submissions on the proposed changes.
A Hearings Panel made up of elected members will then consider the feedback received and make a recommendations to the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board on whether the management plan and reserve classification should be changed.
*A drop-in session where people can learn more about what it proposed and talk to Council staff will be held at the Hornby Primary School office, 190 Waterloo Road, on Tuesday, 19 March, between 5 and 6.30pm.
