Pukeahu National War Memorial Park in Wellington was created as the Government’s key project to acknowledge the centenary of the First World War. This was completed in time to be the centrepiece of Anzac Day commemorations in 2015. WW100, the centenary of New Zealand's participation in the First World War, will be marked over several years through a variety of commemorative activities and projects.
