City Promenade opening event this weekend

Christchurch’s new City Promenade will be officially opened this Sunday at 10am.

Ōtākaro Limited is celebrating its completion of the work by holding the City Promenade Scavenger Hunt with $10,000 worth of prizes on offer from the neighbouring businesses, including a $5,000 Discover Travel voucher.

Ōtākaro Chief Executive, John Bridgman, says Sunday is the first chance people will have to walk the City Promenade from end to end.

“To make opening day extra special we’ve got 20 musical acts playing throughout the day along the Promenade as well as face painting, eel feeding and food trucks to keep you entertained and energised while searching for the answers to the 10 simple Scavenger Hunt questions.

The official opening will take place near the Pegasus Arms at 10am, then you will be able to grab an entry form and start your stroll to the other end of the Promenade where you will find an entry box for the completed forms.

Entry forms will also be available near the Margaret Mahy Family Playground if you wish to walk, bike or scooter from that end. Just make sure to get your entry form in the boxes at either end of the Promenade by 4pm on Sunday.

Ōtākaro staff will be stationed throughout the Promenade in bright green t-shirts, ready to help with clues.”

Gordon Campbell: On National Spreading Panic About The Economy


It is a political strategy as old as time. Scare the public with tales of disaster and stampede them into supporting your ideological agenda because they believe There Is No Alternative. Yet, if the NZ economy truly is as “fragile” as PM Christopher Luxon says it is... Then how come New Zealand has enjoyed a double AA+ credit rating from the international rating agencies for so long? If we have truly been in the thrall of incompetent tax, spend and borrow extremists for the past six years, how come our net government debt burden is only in the middling average of OECD countries, and how come our government debt-to-GDP ratio – however you measure it – is less than half the average for the Asia-Pacific region?..
