Take a walk in Christchurch

Take a walk in Christchurch

Christchurch residents are being encouraged to take a walk and explore their city with the release of seven new booklets detailing 49 short, scenic walks in and around the City.

Produced by the Christchurch City Council, the Walk Christchurch booklets showcase Christchurch's best parks, reserves and some formed tracks, including seven new day walks of three to five hours that link most of the walks in each booklet.

Information in the booklets covers all ages, dog owners, families and those who have an interest in history or flora and fauna.

The seven separate booklets replace the Council's spiral-bound bestseller Walk Christchurch.

The user-friendly, area-based booklets are sold for $15 a set. A limited number are available individually for $3 each. The seven booklet titles are: The Sea, Spit and Estuary; Coast, Cliff, Caves; Avon River Walks; Heathcote River Walks; Wetland Walks; Gardens and Homes; and Into the Hills. Copies can be purchased from City Council service centres, the Civic Offices in Tuam Street or by phoning 941 8999. A preview of some of the walks can be viewed at www.active.christchurch.org.nz
