Amundsen Grove is a street located in the suburb of Stokes Valley in Lower Hutt. The street was named after Roald Amundsen, a Norwegian explorer who was the first person to reach the South Pole in 1911.
Amundsen was born in 1872 in Borge, Norway, and grew up with a love for exploration and adventure. He made several expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic regions, and in 1911, he led a team of explorers on an expedition to the South Pole. The team reached the pole on December 14, 1911, beating a rival British team led by Robert Falcon Scott.
