More Info →Aerial view of Showgrounds, Pascal Street

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 Palmerston North A & P show was held in that year at the newly formed Showgrounds. In 1973 the Grounds were transferred to the Palmerston North City Council and since then have been administered by a Trust. This photograph was taken before May 1977, as on that date the cattle pavilion, top centre of photograph was destroyed by fire. Pascal Street is on the left.
