Who can remember Pigeon Park?
In 1992 it was renamed Te Aro Park as part of a major redesign of the park, which was once a Maori pa site. After Europeans arrived it was the site of the first Christian sermon.
In World War Two it was the gathering point for pacifist objectors. For years it was also the starting point for demonstrations to Parliament.
It has again been in the news recently over complaints about people taking drugs and unruly behavior on the park, which was once the home to a sizable population of pigeons.
