CAMPBELL STATUE AND FOUNTAIN

The statue of Sir John Logan Campbell is located at the entrance to the original carriage-way into Cornwall Park from Manukau Road. Campbell spent a considerable amount of money to ensure that Market Road could be diverted and a large, semi-circular 'Ante- Park' created for his statue and for the formal entrance to the Park. The statue of was modelled and cast in bronze by Henry A. Pegram in London, and set on a base of Mt Eden stone. The pool and statue base were designed by Charles Le Neve Arnold, the architect of Huia Lodge. The fountain playing at its base completes the impressive structure.
