Life at Te Kauwhata
Lakeside will see for the first time public access provided to the banks of Lake Waikare and its surroundings, via the creation of over 5km of walking and cycle trails within Lakeside's 185 acres of dedicated reserve land.
The Lakeside Village Centre will provide the residents of Lakeside and the wider community with valuable community facilities all within walking distance of home. Work is already underway on the planned Village Centre which will include a childcare centre, a café and restaurant, retail and office spaces, a general store and a children's playground. Whatever your needs, the Lakeside Village Centre will be a meeting and focal point for a vibrant growing community which will ensure that Lakeside will be both a great place to live now and for future generations to come.
Te Kauwhata has a range of education options with three early childhood learning centres and Te Kauwhata College.
The future school within Lakeside, once constructed, will become the lone primary school for the Te Kawhato community. Making your morning drop-off just a short walk down the road.
An enormous body of water you've driven by but never knew was there
Just a stone's throw from State Highway 1 is one of the North Island's best kept secrets. Lake Waikare is an impressively large body of water and the backdrop to the Lakeside development. Providing ever-changing vistas, extensive walking and cycling tracks and a natural habitat for the abundant bird life, you'll love living above the banks of Lake Waikare.
