    Abstract During World War II, Queen Elizabeth Park was the site of the largest
    United States Marine Corps camp in New Zealand. The camp housed
    more than 20,000 men in and around the present park boundaries.

    To recapture the life at the camps and to recognise the aid the United
    States Marines gave to our region, the Wellington Regional Council has
    erected a commemorative plaque, flags and interpretation panels at
    Queen Elizabeth Park.

    This brochure includes camp building, the arrival of the marines, training
    exercises, lasting impressions and how to get there.
