Sunnynook Community Centre is situated on the corner of Sunnynook Road and Sycamore Drive in Sunnynook on the North Shore, Auckland City.

We have rooms for hire at Sunnynook Community Centre and the Kennedy Park Observation Post which is situated in Castor Bay.

We have Sunnynook Community Early Learning which is open during school terms (see the Sunnynook Community Early Learning page for more information).

We also run a School Holiday Programme at Sunnynook and a Youth Holiday Programme at Kennedy Park.  Please phone Bronwyn or Debbie on 410-4902 or email if you would like more information (there is currently a large waiting list for both programmes).


The purpose of the Sunnynook Community Centre is to enhance social and cultural well-being by providing accessible and affordable opportunities for people of all ages, cultures and interests to come together in a safe and supportive environment to:

  • Make friends, meet people, learn, contribute and participate in the local community.
  • Participate in programmes and services developed in response to changing community needs.


We will endeavour at all times to:

  • Have a strong community focus driving the decisions we make.
  • Provide a warm and welcoming environment for all centre users.
  • Embrace and celebrate the diversity within our community.
  • Be family focussed and safety conscious.
  • Provide quality facilities for users.


The Sunnynook Community Centre requires a minimum number of members to exist as a Society.
The Management Committee (Governance Committee) is elected from the members and is responsible for meeting the objectives of the Society and for administering the Sunnynook Community Centre and facilities used by the local Community.

Would you consider joining the Management Committee and help make a difference in your local Community.

We are holding our Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 13th June 2018 at 7pm at the Community Centre (Sycamore Room).
Members of the local Community are welcome to attend - rsvp via email:
