Just a few minutes’ walk from anywhere in this compact little ‘burb, you’ll find the green oasis of Fergusson Domain, fringed by gorgeous trees and heritage stone walkways. It’s home to a kindy, a sports club and gym, a playground, and brand new basketball courts and a children’s pump track.
Arguably Auckland’s most cherished green space, Cornwall Park isn’t exactly a secret. But you might not know that it’s not just One Tree Hill and Epsom residents who get to enjoy having this national treasure on their doorstep. Oranga also borders Cornwall Park, and locals definitely make the most of it.
Visit the Oranga Community Centre on any given day, and you’ll find a hive of activity. This much -loved community treasure runs a jam packed calendar of kids, sports, arts and cultural events, year round. It’s the perfect place to catch up with local friends or make new ones.
There are 1,200 new homes on their way to Oranga, so if you want to make this awesome little neighbourhood home, there’s plenty to choose from. Architecturally-designed and built by New Zealand’s most respected builders, all new homes here must meet a 6 (or above) Homestar rating, meaning they’re better quality and cheaper to run than a standard home built to the New Zealand building code.
