Avon River Precinct

Sit back and soak up the park-like surroundings, stroll to a riverfront café, or take the picturesque route to do your inner city shopping; whichever way you look at it, Te Papa Ōtākaro / Avon River Precinct winds through the heart of everything we love about Christchurch.

The river is being transformed as part of Christchurch's regeneration. The aim is to create a city waterfront that is safe, welcoming and vibrant, and where shared cultural values are celebrated.
