Te Kauwhata War Memorial Domain

Dedication Plaque

After the Second World War, the Te Kauwhata Domain was redeveloped as the Te Kauwhata War Memorial Sports and Recreation Domain, which was formally opened in 1953. Plans to build a war memorial arch at the entrance never came to fruition, and in 1978 the area was renamed the Te Kauwhata Recreational Reserve. On Anzac Day 1989 a memorial stone was dedicated on what once again became known as the Te Kauwhata War Memorial Domain.

The Te Kauwhata Lions Club plans to erect a more substantial ‘all wars’ memorial in the railway reserve at the western entrance to the town.
