About Te Manawa

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.
