The new city of Christchurch is a children’s wonderland: playgrounds, cool new icecream stores, incredible learning spaces and of course the Christchurch Tram is the best way to get around it all! Whether it is to fill in a day or two in the holidays, or perhaps a weekend treat, an excursion through the city is sure to delight kids of all ages.
A day pass on the historic Christchurch Tram will lead you straight to some of the key must dos and or drop you close enough for a short walk to the others. Jump on at any of the 17 tram stops around the city and start your journey. Be sure to stop in for a visit at Tūranga, the brand new central city knowledge centre, for a quick burst of learning; hop off at New Regent Street for a delicious gelato from Rollickin’ Gelato and just a hop skip and jump to the incredible Margaret Mahy Playground. The Terraces on Oxford Terrace and new Riverside Market are also a must do and are a well-deserved treat for some tired parents.
We haven’t even got to the best bit: with the Christchurch Tram City Tour, for every paying adult you can take up to three kids for free! So grab the kids (maybe throw in a friend or two!), your enthusiasm and get exploring the new Christchurch!
