What's the BEST suburb to live with kids in NZ?

I like central Auckland. I like all Suburbs in the central.

So what benefits do kids have in Central Auckland that's above everywhere else?

@julz1983- Things we need like good school, all kinds of restaurants, 'cheap wholesale shops', etc etc


Glendowie!! Close to the safe beaches, nature walks, playgrounds , kid-friendly cafes and good schools of St Heliers etc, but also just 'down the road' from great budget shopping areas of Glen Innes and the like.


"Best " is such a subjective term and therefore, for me, this is an impossible question. It's like asking what is the best food or husband or handbag or dress! Everyone has different needs, desires and tastes. What is chalk for one is cheese for another! Not only that, I imagine very few people have lived in more than a dozen suburbs in NZ and there must be hundreds to sample! Therefore no one is able to judge the 'best' suburb for kids - only relatively among the ones they know.


Exactly Wice. We moved to the city from a farm, so we bought close to a park so the kids could just cross the road and have plenty of space to run around, play cricket etc. But others priority may have been schooling or shops or transport.


i likes living across from One Tree Hill... living by a park was great fun as a kid...


I want to go on that flying fox.

they have a lame flying fox now i think... it used to be so cool.. like 3 levels high!!
