About Albert-Eden

He kōrero mō Albert-Eden

The Albert-Eden Local Board includes the established suburbs of Pt Chevalier, Waterview, Mt Albert, Mt Eden, Kingsland, Balmoral, Epsom and Greenlane.

Character of the Albert-Eden Local Board area

Centrally located within the Auckland isthmus, the area has very good transport links, well-established and relatively high density residential areas and an ethnically diverse population.

It has a strong 'village' character.

Village centres include:

  • Mt Eden, with an arts focus
  • Kingsland, which has in recent years become home to an edgier, younger culture
  • Sandringham with its distinctively Indian community focus
  • Mt Albert, whose community is in search of urban renewal.

Geography of the Albert-Eden Local Board area

Geographically, the area is defined by three volcanic cones - Ōwairaka-Mt Albert, Maungawhau-Mt Eden and Tītīkōpuke-Mt St John, and by the urban streams and the sea coast.

Te Auaunga-Oakley Creek, the longest stream in Auckland City, flows into the Motu Manawa Marine Reserve at Waterview; Waititiko-Meola Creek converges with the Waitematā Harbour at Meola Reef.

There are a number of lava flow forest remnants - Withiel and Almorah in Epsom and Gribblehirst in Sandringham.

The area includes evidence of early Māori settlement: numerous pa sites and other intensive development, such as the excavation on Maungawhau, are found within Albert-Eden.

Amenities in the Albert-Eden Local Board area

Located within the area are:

  • Eden Park, which hosted key parts of the Rugby World Cup
  • the popular Pt Chevalier beaches
  • a number of well-used recreational areas and parks such as Gribblehirst and Ōwairaka parks.
