The upgrade works to Hurstmere Road are still happening, but businesses are all open for business! Takapuna boasts over 4,000 places to park around town – from the new Toka Puia carpark, Killarney St carpark (which are both offering 50c p/hr parking through the AT App until the end of June!), to the 3hr free parking with Shore City – there are plenty of opportunities for you to keep supporting our local Takapuna businesses, as you have been already. There are also new 10 minute pick and up and drop of parks available along the Hurstmere Road side of the Anzac Street carpark – which allow for handy access to the Hurstmere Road businesses for quick visits!
Don’t let the cooler weather stop you heading out to enjoy Takapuna this month, there are plenty of shows happening at the Bruce Mason Centre – from The Pink Floyd Experience and Last Night of the Proms, to Mansfield – In Her Own Words, and Morning Melodies with the Royal New Zealand Navy Band and Seasons for those with younger families. The PumpHouse is also showing The Soldiers Tale, and is hosting the award-winning comedian and magician, Jarred Fell for one show only!
Make a night of it, and head in to Takapuna for some delicious dinner or small bite, before you head to the theatre for a show. Or if live-action isn’t your thing – keep warm and cosy on the luxurious couches at Monterey Cinema and treat yourself to one of their new releases.
And next month – Takapuna will be hosting a special event as part of the Elemental Festival, with plenty of things to LIGHT up your winter – so keep an eye on our social channels and website for more details to come soon!
Whatever you’re up to in Takapuna this Winter, we’d love to see it (or places and businesses you love to visit!), so please tag us:
