|National War Memorial|
The park creates more space around the National War Memorial including the Carillon, the Hall of Memories, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and The Man with the Donkey. With room for memorials from other countries such as Australia.
The extra space came from lowering the road and building the Arras tunnel.

The Australian memorial features 15 red sandstone columns symbolising Australia's 'Red Centre'. Behind are eucalypt trees (still quite small) that represent the Australian landscape. See here for a more detailed description.
To gain an understanding of the significance of the various items in the gardens, including the 'Hinerangi' sculpture, see here.
