Pukeahu National War Memorial Park
Finalist - Vibrant GoldPaul James
Lest We Forget

Pukeahu National Memorial Park is a place to reflect on New Zealand’s experience of conflict and how this has shaped our national identity. Spanning State Highway 1, Pukeahu was dedicated on 18 April 2015 by the Governor-General and Prime Minister.

Led by the Ministry for Culture and Heritage, the award-winning park was developed in collaboration with a number of other government agencies, architects, contractors and the local community. Since opening, visitor numbers to the National War Memorial have increased ten-fold and the park has become a much-cherished public space for many Wellingtonians.

“The work doesn’t stop there,” Culture and Heritage Chief Executive Paul James (pictured), says. “Later this year the Queen Elizabeth II Pukeahu Education Centre will open. Additional international memorials are planned and a number of activities throughout the year will see Pukeahu become much more than an ANZAC Day destination.”
