Christchurch Hospital parking

See Transport and parking for up-to-date information about parking at Christchurch Hospital and Christchurch Women's Hospital. Also see this map of Christchurch Hospital and Christchurch Women's Hospital showing details of parking locations and drop-off zones.

The Riverside entrance to the hospital is closed. There is very limited premium metered parking on-site in front of the Emergency Department outside the Waipapa building. This is intended for emergencies and drop off and pick up only. Some hospital parking is available for mobility card holders. This is indicated by the wheelchair icons on the map linked above.

Patients can still be dropped off at the main entrance to the hospital. A park and ride service allows people to park in the Deans Ave car park and take a free shuttle to the hospital.

Pay-as-you-go parking is available on Riccarton Ave, Rolleston Ave and the other streets surrounding the hospital.

Make sure you allow plenty of time before an appointment to find a car park.
