This is a very moving area to visit. So many lives were lost and every one is remembered on this simple wall remembers them all. This understated white wall is such an inspirational memorial to those taken from us by the 2011 earthquake.

My wife and I spent some time walking along and reading the names of those taken as a result of the 2011 quake. One or two were known to me, but regardless, the list of names, qualifications and ethnicities was astounding. Congratulations to those responsible for erecting this memorial!

A must to visit the place-name of a friend lost in the CCTV building collapse. A place of reflection - we liked the family and friend touches beneath lost loved ones names. Also a nice touch to be able to sit on the opposite side in the quiet to spend some quiet time.

They did a great job with the design of this place. Definitely communicate the pain and sadness that the city and the earthquake victims had to endure.

This is memorial to the 185 people killed in the Christchurch Earthquake in 2011. I think it is nicely done - not overstated at all. It is good that they put the names of the overseas people in their own language as well as in English.
Situated in a nice position alongside the river.

Definitely worth a visit to the Earthquake memorial on the banks of the river Avon. I personally would have liked some information as to where the deaths took place.

First time down this walk of remembrance, which we found quite sobering as we viewed the dozens of names inscribed in the granite walls. A fitting reminded of a devastating past.
