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.  We have however had to close the Waiting List at this point.  We will advise when it is reopened.


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.
