This is a short walk to invite you to discover some of the historical and natural treasures of Woolston, a suburb that has played an important role in the development of the city of Christchurch. The circular walk will take about one hour and follows along both sides of the Opāwāho/Heathcote River. The starting point is the Christchurch Quay located on the corner of Richardson Terrace and Ferry Road, but you can join the walk at any place along the route.
Click each number on this map to discover information about what used to be here, or still is. On the ground at each location you will also discover a marker that has a QR code which will also take you to this information.
This walk was prepared for you by the Laura Kent Reserve Workgroup, a volunteer group which is part of the Opāwāho Heathcote River Network. The workgroup meets on the first Saturday of every month, 9.00-11.00am to act as kaitiaki of this area.
