It’s popular with families who enjoy the plentiful green space and quality schooling in the area. Point England Primary has enjoyed remarkable success as a pioneering participant in Manaiakalani, a digital learning programme that has significantly lifted achievement rates among Tāmaki children.
Bordering the northern end of the suburb, the 41ha Point England Reserve is a community taonga. Stretching along the Tāmaki river, it encompasses varied landscapes, including important bird nesting grounds and farmland. The Point England walkway runs along the length of the reserve and will become part of the 11km Tāmaki Loop. Co-managed by Ngāti Pāoa and Auckland Council, the iwi has plans to restore Tāmaki River and Omaru creek and build a marae on a portion of the site.
Over the next 20 years, the old state houses in Point England are being replaced by around 1,900 new, high quality homes. Of these, around one third will be state homes, and around two thirds affordable and market homes. The construction of homes is accompanied by significant investment in parks, community facilities, streets, infrastructure and transport.
The Tāmaki Loop is set to become a popular family destination for locals and visitors alike. This shared pedestrian and cycle route will connect residents across Tāmaki to each other, the striking Maungarei (Mount Wellington), and the sparkling awa, taking in expansive parks and playgrounds. Co-designed with local iwi, hāpu and the community, it will showcase Tāmaki’s rich natural and cultural history along the way.
