Magical World is an app that sends the user into a gaming fantasy land where they can herd kittens and chase dinosaurs.
The Christchurch City Council launched the game with the help of Geo AR Games at the start of March.
Council Head of Parks, Andrew Rutledge, said Magical Parks was a new take on the city's traditional Park Weeks, which encourage people to get out and enjoy their local parks.
The app was only planned to be active for two weeks but the level of usage meant the council extended the lifespan of the game.
It was originally available to play at Wycola Park, Cypress Gardens and Ouruhia Reserve, but the extension only includes Ouruhia Reserve.
