This is special!
Apr 2021
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!

Touching place of reflection
Apr 2021
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.

Great design
Mar 2021
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.

Nicely done memorial
Dec 2020
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.

Beautiful memorial
Oct 2020
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.

A solemn place
Sep 2020
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.

Really unattractive. I don't understand this
Jun 2020
This was a very expensive installation, and my family and I cannot understand why it is so bland and unattractive. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.

Very poignant memorial
Jun 2020
For a city that was nearly destroyed by the earthquake, and is obviously struggling with the rebuild, it is really nice to see that those who lost their lives have been remembered in a timely manner. Very serene by the river. Well done Christchurch
