Join the Ellerslie Community
Become part of something bigger
When you take a step into our neighbourhood, what you will notice first are all the smiles.
People wave and greet one another. People ask about your day. Everyone knows one another. More importantly, they care... Take a further look at our streets and you might notice the stunning mosaics at Memory Corner and by the Ellerslie Community Centre.
You might even notice some colourful rocks around town that were painted in collaboration with the local school children and our businesses - all part of our community initiatives to bring smiles and surprise to everyone’s daily routines.
No matter where you look, you are sure to see people coming together to make our community a better place!
A place you can call home
Synonymous with support, art, and flavour, Ellerslie embraces community. With the sense of connection we share, we’re all looking out for one another.
For this reason, our town is also a safe place to live, and an even better place to raise a family.
Curious about moving into our neighbourhood with your kids? Don’t stress about the transition, particularly with schooling. Our schools are considered some of the best in the Auckland region.
We also have a great range of Community Groups, Sports Clubs and Churches in the area too. Check out what Ellerslie has to offer:
How to get involved
There are many ways to contribute to the community.
Of course, our vibrant town centre is filled with unique businesses who are the backbone of our community. Many of the families that live here also own businesses and they are always giving back in some way.
As a new or current business owner, you can contact us at the Ellerslie Business Association for ideas and information on events or plans in the works.
If you’re a local or someone who loves visiting Ellerslie, and you have ideas for community initiatives or community events you would like us to promote, we encourage you to get in touch.
