Moving in the right direction


We set out on this journey to create a world class coastal pathway connecting land and sea. We wanted to give Christchurch something to be proud of. An area for locals and visitors alike to come together and embrace the outdoors. It has not been easy but like all good things it takes time, perseverance and passion. We believe in this project. We hope you do too. 


"My goal for the pathway is that it becomes much more than a connection between two points – that it becomes an opportunity to get together, to exercise, to explore, to adventure, and to enjoy."

"I am passionate about the ‘riviera’ of Christchurch and believe the people of our city deserve a world-class coastal pathway – so that all ages can fully appreciate, interact and enjoy this asset, and show it off with pride to our visitors"


"A vision emerged for a green, accessible, varied and connected pathway. Key values and ideas were distilled to the desire for: ‘a necklace of jewels, connecting communities.’"


"As more people are hearing about this, the support for the pathway is growing exponentially”"
