The lakelet was the main feature of the last quadrant of The Square to be developed by the Beautifying Society. James Nash, Mayor of Palmerston North, standing centre on the bridge, is opening the Lakelet before a crowd. The Lakelet is shaped as a butterfly, with the 'wings' bisected by a bridge as its body. It is also referred to as the Butterfly Lake.
