Hobsonville Point a Great Place to Raise Kids

Oct 5 2018 Community

Quality education, safe communities and the ability to forge strong relationships are some of the most sought after qualities that parents consider when choosing a new home in Auckland. And up until recently, landing the golden trifecta of the family-friendly neighbourhood seemed like an unattainable goal. Now, we’re spoiled for choice.

Hobsonville Point has been designed with families in mind. It’s as safe as it is walkable, so the kids can visit their friends, play outside (instead of glued to the screen), and walk to school (rather than sit in traffic). There’s also plenty of activities around the neighbourhood, so parents are spoilt for choice when it comes to weekend activities.
