The Pukeahu National War Memorial

The Pukeahu National War Memorial Park - two years worth of effort put into this project - has officially opened in Wellington.

This project is super unique. It has been created specially so that it can mark New Zealand's involvement in the First World War. About 500 people attended the memorial’s official opening last week ahead of next week’s ANZAC centenary commemorations.

Governor General Sir Jerry Mateparae notified the crowd New Zealand finally had a place to reflect on it’s history from WW1.
Prime Minister John Key was there and made a speech. In his speech he made a statement. “  New Zealanders can come to the Pukeahu National War Memorial to reflect in conflict”.

This event was a very special event for many people. If you can go and check out the place.

Lest we Forget.
