Our community centre has an attractive lounge complete with a Café, Library, Hairdressing Salon, and Conservatory. There is a Barbecue area outside and a Workshop for Residents’ use downstairs. Additional recreation facilities include an snooker/billiards room, indoor heated pool, spa pool, gymnasium and movie theatre. We have a sheltered green for Bowls and Croquet, a petanque terrain with a club house for meetings and afternoon tea. The vegetable allotment plots back onto the Green. There is an active Art Group with their very own Studio.

Also, easy access to YMCA Fitness Centre (just down the road) and immediate access to Auckland University of Technology (“AUT”) – a 2 minute walk – with ability to use the Sport and Fitness Centre.

These activities and many others are organised by Residents and usually conducted by them, rather than by paid staff. Northbridge Residents have a tradition of independence, and pride themselves on this.
