It’s the first of its kind in Auckland, and it officially opened at the weekend.
Welcome to Te Manawa, the new multipurpose community facility at Westgate, which heralds a new way to interact with the council.
Hundreds of people braved the weather to come and share in the celebrations with music, entertainment and more, as well as getting a first look at the new facility.
The newly-opened multipurpose facility, Te Manawa, is the first of its kind in Auckland – both a community hub and library built for the city of the future and generations to come.
As a cornerstone of Westgate’s urban complex, Te Manawa will provide West Aucklanders with space and resources to explore, connect and grow.
The facility includes the Auckland Council services area where residents can sort administrative matters, a library with a children's area, a commercial kitchen available for catering events, and a stage for storytelling and performances.
