It is a miracle that this bridge is still standing; developers don't seem to like historical buildings. This one commemorates the soldiers marching through Ch-ch to King Edward Barracks before embarking on various wars. King Edward Barracks gave way to a carpark which is now a glittering new building just like all the others in modern cities around the world.

This bridge has been beautifully restored since being badly damaged in the earthquakes. There are some very interesting plaques detailing military events and military units. The bridge looks particularly appealing after dark due to very well placed lighting.

Dear Madam/Sir, RE: Bridge of remembrance is a walk way into the city streets that paves way to the shopping centres and malls. Thank you

Nice to warm your rear on the sun warmed stone benches -- they are gray or black and absorb the sun's heat all day and so you feel like you are sitting on a heated seat when you sit on them. There is also a stone ping pong table but no balls or paddles were available when we were there... More

A must to see in Christchurch. A peaceful way of remembering those that protect NZ. Sit, relax and reflect.

Came across this near the temporary container city. A great site to remember those who fought in the war. It is next to the Avon river and has some free public ping pong tables around for use. Great little area to stroll around and is easy to get to near Cashel avenue and right in from of the tram stop.... More

Previously damaged bridge, now restored, is a memorial to those that have fallen. It crosses over the Avon River at Cashel Street across from the RE-Start Mall. We saw it at dusk; as the sun ebbs away it is still an imposing sight. There is a wooden wheel close by and many flowers alongside the river on the waterfront.

I made a quick stop by the memorial on the last night in Christchurch and it looks a little cooler at night with the lights illuminating the arch over the bridge, and the memorial is dedicated to those from the Canterbury region who were summoned to fight in the previous world wars Makes for a nice stop while walking in...
