Parliament's grounds has been officially reopened, months after it sustained prolonged damage during protests earlier this year.

Taranaki Whānui chair Kara Puketapu-Dentice said the event was part of the healing process - "and a time for kōtahitanga (unity) as we stand together on our tupuna whenua".

There was speeches by Parliament’s Tumu Whakarae Kura Moeahu, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and out-going Speaker Trevor Mallard.

MPs, Wellingtonians and Parliamentary workers enjoyed ice cream and sausages after the re-opening.
