Burwood is a north-eastern suburb of Christchurch, New Zealand. The suburb is mostly a residential area and is centred on Burwood Hospital, Travis Wetland Nature Heritage Park and Bottle Lake Forest (a 31-acre (130,000 m2) recreation, forested area). Recently, the local iwi, Ngāi Tahu, created a new subdivision in the area, naming it 'Tumara Park'.
Large areas of Burwood, including the Horseshoe Lake area, suffered severe damage in the 2010 and 2011 Christchurch earthquakes, and were abandoned under government policy that placed them in a residential red zone. Burwood contained two schools—Burwood Primary School and Windsor School—and these were amalgamated post-earthquake in 2014 in the Fifth National Government's Christchurch school restructuring to form Waitakiri Primary School.
