History

Ownership of the Marewa block passed from the Hawke's Bay Harbour Board to Council in 1934, and an area of 18 acres was set aside as a park. This was developed over the years, but during World War II the park was used for growing vegetables.

After the war, the park was grassed again, and croquet and bowling greens were established on the Herrick Street frontage. The Jaycees constructed a children's playground at the opposite end of the park.
