Feilding (Māori: Aorangi) is a town in the Manawatu District of the North Island of New Zealand. It is located on State Highway 54, 20 kilometres north of Palmerston North. The town is the seat of the Manawatu District Council. Feilding has won the annual New Zealand's Most Beautiful Town award 16 times. It is an Edwardian themed town. The town is currently extending its CBD beautification featuring paving and planter boxes on the footpaths on the main streets in the CBD, including the realignment and beautification of Fergusson Street to the South Street entrance of Manfeild Park. The town is a service town for the surrounding farming district. The Feilding Saleyards have been a vital part of the wider Manawatu community for over 125 years. As transport systems improved and farming practices changed, the need for small, local saleyards all but disappeared, leaving few major selling complexes in New Zealand. Manawatu is a diverse and fertile farming area with high production, high stock-carrying capacity and a stable climate. These factors make Feilding Saleyards a popular medium for many farmers. A unique aspect of Feilding Saleyards is their location in the centre of town. The Manawatu Plains, on which the town is sited, are very fertile land, and as such it is a prosperous agricultural area. Being located on the floodplain of a major river has its problems, however, and in February 2004 the town suffered extensive flooding. In 2009 the Horizons Regional Council commissioned a new flood protection scheme to prevent extensive flooding in the future.

The first Mass was said in Palmerston North by Father Delphin Moreau, a French Marist Priest, who had walked from Otaki to say this Mass on St Patrick’s Day, 17th March 1872. There were six families present in the surveyor’s office in the corner of the present Square.
Father Moreau came to live in the Manawatu Area in 1875, and so the Parish of St Patrick’s was formed. He built his first church in Broad Street (later Broadway Avenue) in 1877. A second St Patrick’s Church was opened on the same site in 1890, before the third St Patrick’s Church was opened on its present site further down Broadway Avenue in 1925. Father James MacManus was appointed Parish Priest in 1913 and he was responsible for erecting and maintaining this building until 1962.
The Wellington firm of Clere and Clere were the architects and structural engineers. Frederick Clere was one of the foremost ecclesiastical architects of the time. The most striking feature externally is the lofty tower surmounted by three crosses, rising to 50 metres.
The park is a remnant of the original bush that early European settlers named the "Ninety Mile Bush" - so called because it extended for ninety miles from lower Wairarapa to north of this park. Visitors will get an impression of what these settlers faced when they arrived from Denmark, Sweden and Norway - an almost impenetrable forest.

Donated by Arthur Hopwood, the original height of the tower was 26.5 metres. Additional refurbishments were completed in 2007 and the addition of a cross to the top added extra height to the tower and it now stands at 30.5 metres. Some of the best views of the tower are at night when it is illuminated with a light display by a range of colours.

Self contained vehicles can stay here for a maximum of two consecutive nights. It's conveniently located off State Highway 3. It's a little noisy due to the road and only a few spaces to park but perfect if you're feeling a little tired on the road. The memorial here was built in 1940 dedicated to the early European settlers.Visit Mt Stewart Centennial Memorial Reserve
