The War Memorial Park is the largest and most popular park in town. Built around the Mangahoe Stream, the park includes a duck pond, fountain, playground, paved walks, open spaces for picnicking and events, and a "sunken cross" memorial feature.
The park was designed by H. G. Babbage and G. Gibbs, and opened by Sir Sidney Holland (Prime Minister of New Zealand) on the 4th December 1955.
