Standalone three or four bedroom family homes close to schools.
If you'd rather visit a park than mow one, then Hobsonville Point is your kind of place. Hobsonville Point is a medium density development, so the lot sizes are similar to Freeman's Bay. The homes are closer than suburban Aucklanders are used to, but a massive 26 ha has been set aside for parks, reserve and public open space.
Hobsonville Point Park and Playground
The first of our parks to be completed is Hobsonville Point Park. Drive down Buckley Avenue and you'll know you're there when you see the rust colours of the sculptural playground on your right and John Reynolds ghostly charred poles marching through the reeds on your left. The award winning playground has been inspired by the native seedpods that are found on our coast.
Te Onekiritea Point (Bomb Point)
Stunning Te Onekiritea Point (Bomb Point) is the jewel in Hobsonville Point's crown. A significant portion of the 11 hectares of rolling land with 270 degree water views will be preserved as a park so that all Aucklanders can enjoy it. Hobsonville Land Company is working with Auckland Council on plans for the park, but you are welcome to explore in the meantime. There is a track around the perimeter which makes a good walk or cycle. The land is dotted with reminders of its wartime history including munitions storage bunkers, one of which has been painted inside by grafitti artists, Cut Collective.
Bomb Point is only accessible on foot or by cycle.
It's a 10 minute walk from the yacht club end of The Landing.
Te Ara Manawa Hobsonville Point (Coastal Walkway)
The Coastal Walkway is a strip of land that hugs the coast right around the waterfront edge, then cuts across the site at Hobsonville Point Park to form a 4km loop. The Park is conceived as a walking/jogging/cycle path with key points of interest to dicover along the way including bridges, boardwalks and adapted old airforce buildings.
The loop will change as you move around it, for example you might follow a path through native bush, onto a boardwalk over mangroves with a panoramic harbour view, to a waterfront promenade lined with shops and cafés at The Landing. We have a dream team of local and New York-based architects and designers working for us and the project, which is due for completion in the first half of 2017.
