Cranmer Square is at the western edge of the Core, mid-way between Hagley Park, Victoria Square and Ōtākaro/Avon River.

Chester, Armagh and Kilmore streets provide convenient pedestrian, cycle, tram and vehicular connections between these notable green, open spaces. 

Their strong heritage character is reinforced by lines of mature trees and formal lawns.
