Pukeahu National War Memorial Park

New Zealand / The Pacific

Pukeahu National War Memorial Park is New Zealand’s place of remembrance for those who have served us, both in peace and conflict throughout our history. The National War Memorial was built in 1932, when its tall Carillon tower was highly visible across the capital. The original intent was to create a boulevard to link Courtenay Place, however this never eventuated. Instead of a boulevard, the area remained home to schools, homes and businesses. In 2015, Pukeahu National War Memorial Park was completed, diverting the highway underground into Arras Tunnel and creating a quiet, reflective setting for the memorial. The park has also provided a way of commemorating some of New Zealand’s less well-known conflicts and a suitable place for the memorials of our Commonwealth allies and the memorials of other nations.
