The Area

Glenfield is located in the northern inland part of the North Shore.  There are quite a few activities in and around Glenfield, one of the most popular being the Night Market which is held in the bottom car park of the Westfield shopping mall every Sunday night from 5:30pm. Here you will find all sorts of good food to try from all around the world. Glenfield also caters for every other need such as GYM's/pools, Cinemas, Tenpin Bowling and several parks dotted around the area.

If you are looking for something to do on the weekend, the Westfield shopping mall is a great place to head with a large range of different shops to keep you busy. If you are looking for a decent café, you could try 'The Cat Lounge' (if you like cats) or the 'Coffee Lab'.

The area is home to three good schools, Glenfield Primary School, Glenfield intermediate and Glenfield College.

 

The History

Glenfield was originally called 'Mayfield', however a small settlement in Canterbury had already taken the name so in 1912 the postal service officially named the area 'Glenfield'. The 'Mayfield' name still lives on through a side road north of the shops named Mayfield Road.

Before the Auckland Harbour Bridge opened in 1959, most of Glenfield was used for farming. As access improved, many of the farms were sub-divided to make way for residential development.
