More Info →Aerial photograph of Palmerston North Showgrounds

In 1886 the Government gifted 9.5 acres of land in Cuba Street to the Manawatu and West Coast Agricultural and Pastoral Association, and the first A&P show was held in that year. In 1973 the Grounds were transferred to the Palmerston North City Council and since then have been administered by a Trust. The photograph encompasses the block surrounded by Cuba (at bottom), Pascal (on left), Featherston(top) and Waldegrave Streets (right).
