What looks like a parking meter is currently in the Cathedral Square. Instead of issuing parking tickets it gives you a free thing to do within the central city area. It’s part of a wider campaign to promote well-being in Christchurch. You can see the rest of the ideas online at https://www.cph.co.nz/resources/open-city-nothing-to-see-here. And learn more about the project at the Gap Filler website.
For quite a while I’ve been also thinking of doing a long blog post or blog series about things to do and see around Christchurch – as I’ve taken quite a few visitors on walks around the city and they really enjoy learning about some of the quirkier things you might not pick up as a visitor. Just have to find the time to sit down and write it!
