“The Promenade riverside walk was constructed post-earthquakes. It runs between Margaret Mahy playground in the east, to the Hospital/Hagley Park in the west (a little under 2km, end to end). Along the way you’ll see art, new buildings, restored heritage buildings, wildlife - it has it all!”

“A good close part of the red zone of Christchurch. This area was residential until the earthquake, now it is a great area to walk, run , bike, forage for food and have a picnic by the river. It is earmarked for some awesome development in the near future.”
