Pukekura Park


What is now one of the premier botanical gardens in New Zealand began life as a treeless, swampy valley in 1876. It was through the foresight of Robert Clinton Hughes that the passing of the Botanical Gardens Bill enabled the park to be founded. In 1878 the main lake was formed, followed in 1884 by "Poets Bridge" which was built from the winnings of a horse race. Pukekura Park covers 52ha (128 acres) right in the heart of New Plymouth, Taranaki and is one of New Zealand's premier botanical gardens.
