Circle of Friends Memorial

The New Zealand Circle of Friends was established in response to the need for a memorial garden as a focal point to commemorate those whose lives have been touched by HIV/AIDS. The concept was based on the Circle of Friends AIDS Memorial Grove in San Francisco which has now attained the status of a national monument in the United States.
The Kanuka Grove in Western Springs Lakeside Park is the site for the New Zealand Circle of Friends Memorial Garden. It has become a place of contemplation, hope and renewal to commemorate the many New Zealanders who have experienced the effects of HIV/AIDS. Partners, family and friends now have the opportunity to have their own and or their loved one's name engraved in the stone circle, to be maintained in perpetuity.
