The name for Coronation Park comes from a time during the year 1937. The land before this time was being used as a railway workshop but was reverted to Crown Land at a time that coincided with King George VI’s Coronation In 1937.

The unique grove of native trees on the northern side of the Park was made to commemorate this occasion. People from all over the Bay of Plenty region visit Mount Maunganui each year, and this park is always walked past or through.
