New exhibition explores QEII Park’s past & future

Media Release

New exhibition explores QEII Park’s past and future

There’s a rare chance to explore the history and development of QEII Park, Christchurch's flagship sports and leisure complex, at a free exhibition at Our City O-Tautahi from Monday 27 June until Friday 8 July.

Find out how the Park has grown over the years since it opened for the 1974 Commonwealth Games, and relive some of your memories with a rare chance to look back at original archive materials from the Games and the Park, including memorabilia and film clips. You can also send your views about Park's future direct to Christchurch City Council, on the spot, using the 'Have Your Say' workstation.

The exhibition runs alongside public consultation on the future of QEII Park. The Council has developed a draft concept plan, setting out ideas for protecting the character of the Park and shaping its use over coming years. Rather than setting out what will happen, the plan is designed to anticipate what could happen, ensuring that the Council has guidelines in place to make sound and sustainable decisions when it needs to.

If you don’t get chance to see the exhibition, you can find out more about the consultation by picking up a free brochure about QEII Park and the concept plan from Council offices, or see The Council wants your comments and ideas on the proposed plan by Friday 8 July.

Our City O-Tautahi is opposite Rydges Hotel on the corner of Oxford Terrace and Worcester Street in the central city, open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm.
