Savage Crescent

Savage Crescent, Palmerston North
West End, Manawatu
The first Labour Government utilised "Garden City" ideas in this state house development built between 1939 and 1946. It remains relatively intact. Ernst Plischke was one of the architects. The Savage Crescent precinct tells an important part of the story of the first Labour Government’s establishing the New Zealand welfare state.

Look for the interpretation kiosk on the corner of Park Rd and Cook St.
