Learn About This Location
Today Christchurch boasts more road cones and repurposed shipping containers than anywhere else in the world and waypoints in an epic rebuild that sees construction sites throughout the CBD. There is dust, noise, and heavy traffic at times. But don't be deterred-the city center is graced by numerous notable arts institutions, the stunning Botanic Gardens, and Hagley Park. Inner-city streets conceal art projects and pocket gardens, dotted among a thinned-out cityscape featuring remnant stone buildings and the sharp, shiny architecture of new.
