Making great places Aucklanders love

The Community Facilities department plays a vital role in running Auckland / Tāmaki Makaurau. As kaitiaki (guardian) of our community facilities, we are responsible for managing a large portfolio from open spaces to community building. We ensure these facilities efficiently and effectively support the many services of Auckland Council today and for generations to come.

Build, maintain and renew

We believe in using a lifecycle approach to manage our assets which are made up of:

  • Build – Creating new multi-facility premises that contain libraries, community centres and/or leisure centres
  • Maintain – Keeping parks, libraries, venues for hire and toilet blocks clean and tidy
  • Renew – Refurbishing facilities such as libraries, community centres and arts centres.

Who we are

Formed in 2015, Community Facilities is made up of a wide range of different units. We help inform decision-makers, evaluate commercial opportunities, maintain facilities and deliver strategically significant programmes.

Our vision is to create great places Aucklanders love.
