This is a nice way to have a memorial rather than just a monument. The arch is well done and the bridge over the Avon quite pleasant. There are shops and parks nearby and this isn’t out of the way.

It's a lovely old bridge with a neat wooden wheel in the creek next to it. Great for a photograph. It is near the RE:START mall. Lovely to stroll by on your way to somewhere, take a moment to stop and admire it thoroughly.

We were so lucky to be passing by the bridge on veterans day. There was a military display and moment of silence. So beautiful!

It's great to see this bridge now restored from the earthquakes. The stonework is lovely and the bridge is a great shrine to commemorate the fallen.

When we last saw this bridge it had been damaged by the earthquake and was fenced off. It is great to see the work that has been done to repair and restore this bridge at the end of Cashel Street. Just opposite the RE:Start Mall it is a dignified memorial to those who have falled as well as a nice... More

It is a lovely structure as you enter the centre of Christchurch. It is sad that there is not much to see expect construction work after that at the present time.

We are still reeling from the devastation reeked on Christchurch in 2011 and how much demolition and construction work there is still to be done. So great to see this monument restored - so close to the great ReStart shopping and social area.

It's. nice monument in the middle of the city. Besides seeing it up close, it's also visible from other nearby areas such as Re:START and so forms a sort of backdrop for Christchurch itself. Definitely worth seeing in you are in the area.

Located in the heart of the city. May have an on-going constructions site around area due to earthquake just have to look a right spot for a best view. Neverthless, still a good place to visit.
