Glen Innes

Glen Innes is a young, diverse and close-knit community with a thriving cultural and arts scene.

The area is blessed with many green spaces, and is bordered by Colin Maiden Park to the west and Point England Reserve and the coast to the east. Glen Innes whānau can choose from numerous quality education options, including Te Kura Kaupapa Māori O Puau Te Moananui A Kiwa (a full immersion Māori school). Residents are well-served by local taonga, Ruapotaka Marae, as well as community facilities such as Te Oro arts centre, Glen Innes Library, and the Glen Innes Pool and Leisure Centre. 


There’s a lot to love about Glen Innes. Here are a few local favourites. 


Over the next two decades, the Tāmaki regeneration programme will build on Glen Innes’ many strengths to create an even brighter future for everyone who lives here. Here are a few of the changes on the way.

Glen Innes Town Centre revitalisation

We’re working in partnership with Mana Whenua, local entrepreneurs, the Maungakieke-Tāmaki Local Board and the Glen Innes Business Association to bring new life to the Glen Innes town centre while retaining its special character. The planned revitalisation is being done in consultation with the local community, and over the next 20 years will create attractive public spaces and walking links between the train station, Mayfair Place, the library, Te Oro Music and Arts Centre, and Maybury Reserve.

Transport Hub Upgrade

It’s just 12 minutes to the CBD by train from Tāmaki. We’re working with Auckland Transport to upgrade the Glen Innes Transport Hub to improve train and bus connections to the area. This will include a new overbridge linking the train station to the town centre.

Tāmaki Loop

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, and built in partnership with the Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board, it will showcase Tāmaki’s rich natural and cultural history along the way.
