Located between the Manukau Harbour and the Hunua Ranges, Papakura offers the best of New Zealand. It has a horticultural surrounding with lifestyle blocks and access to both business and industrial areas. It also features excellent access to Auckland cities, airports and rural areas surrounding Papakura.
It is both a town and country, letting residents enjoy convenient access to beaches at Kawakawa Bay, Orere Point and Maraetai. It is far enough from the bustling city, but still offers the convenience of rail and bus. There is not much traffic, and the small community gives everyone an opportunity to know each other. Real estate specialist First National Real Estate Papakura also notes the affordability of houses and the lifestyle in the small suburb.
The Safe Community
One of the things that makes Papakura a great place to live in is its safe and stable community. Residents greet each other on the streets, neighbours are friends with each other, and kids thrive in a secure environment. While the community has a higher population of young people, it has low levels of youth apprehensions as well as anti-social offence rates compared to the rest of the country.
Recreation for Everyone
There is also a wide range of facilities and recreation in the district, even though the community is the smallest of all the seven Auckland council areas. The district council also hosts several community events throughout the year, and there are a number of buildings and facilities for the community to use for different functions and activities.
Papakura community, of course, is not perfect. But the good news is, it strives to address all issues to give residents a rewarding lifestyle. The council continues to develop approaches and solutions that reflect the district’s geography, culture and lifestyle. With the community rapidly growing as a city, it works to strengthen social bonds among families, friends and all residents.
