In 1926, the Thirty Thousand Club formed the grass plots flanking the road and in 1929 the club donated Phoenix carnariensis, which were planted
between the Plane trees. The palms were much admired, and in 1939 the Planes were removed. By 1943, the palms extended out to Greenmeadows.
When the suburbs of Onekawa and Pirimai were developed south of Riverbend Road, the construction of a dual carriageway road necessitated the
