Description

The Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial was opened to the public at the sixth anniversary commemoration event on 22 February 2017. The memorial is a place to reflect on the 2010/2011 earthquakes that changed Greater Christchurch forever. It pays respect to those who lost their lives, those who were seriously injured and survivors. The memorial also acknowledges the shared trauma and the support received during the response and recovery that followed. The Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial has been designed as two distinct areas either side of the gentle curve of the tkaro/Avon River. A park space on the north bank, with trees, seating and gardens looks across the river to the sunny memorial wall area on the south bank.

Added to WikiCamps today. It's a wall, architecturally, beautiful, and really interesting though sad to see. Worth a stop and a moment.
