Created in 2015, Pukeahu National War Memorial Park is the national place for New Zealanders to remember and reflect on this country’s experience of war, military conflict, and peacekeeping, and how that experience shapes our ideals and sense of national identity. The park commemorates more than 30,000 New Zealanders who died in conflict and honours all who have served.

The park is on Buckle Street - between Taranaki Street and Tory Street - in central Wellington, just a 15-minute walk from Te Papa and the city’s waterfront. The most accessible entrance can be found at 197 Tory Street.
