“Beautiful open square”
Review of Latimer Square

Latimer Square
Reviewed 12 May 2016

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

And as they have all gone it now appears like a lawn in the middle of nowhere!
I'm sure they will rebuild around it again - what, and whether they even should, will be seen over time. In the interim it looks very barren.

Latimer square is simply green space. It is located in downtown Christchurch and would be lovely for a picnic or kicking a ball around. It has some trees and to be honest is simply like a park.

This is a wonderful open green space near what was the heart of the city. Today it is a good landmark and beginning or ending point for a walk around Christchurch.

Nothing much to say about this square.
It's an ordinary square that offers some green lawns and several trees.
Nothing more, nor less.
I would certainly not categorize it as an "attraction".
