During Local History Week 2020, Jason Pilkington, Parks Planner of the Palmerston North City Council (at centre, pointing), took people on a walk around Memorial Park.

Memorial Park was built on the site of a former gravel pit. It was originally named Fitzroy Park in the 1930s and renamed as Memorial Park in the 1950s.
