The only reason you would visit this park - as a visitor rather than a local, is to vitis that Cardboard Cathedral. The church itself it beautiful even despite of the reason for its creation. It makes for a good photo from the park.

An open area (grass) in the middle of Christchurch. Famous now for being opposite the Cardboard Cathedral. There was an interesting work of art at this spot when I was there. See my photo.

Latimer Square is across the road from the Transitional Cathedral and is well worth the visit. A peaceful place that was great for a rest while enjoying the city of Christchurch.

This is a great open space just to sit and relax. Lots of construction going on around and this park is a wee oasis amongst it all. Close to the new playground and a short walk to some cafes.

This is a beautiful open square located in the center of Christchurch. I believe this is named for Hugh Latimer from the 1500's.
