There are several great schools in the area including Carmel College, Milford Primary School, Rosmini College, Takapuna Normal Intermediate and Takapuna Grammer School.
Milford is generally thought to have been named by Edwin Harrow who owned a grand 2 storey Edwardian hotel in Killarney Sreet, Takapuna, and originated from Milford on Sea in the south of England.
Back in 1928 Ye 'Olde Pirate Shippe' was constructed by James Fletcherin and opened January 1929. The Milford swimming pool as can be seen in the photos was opened in 1936 and demolished in 1957.
The Māori place name Takapuna originally referred to a freshwater spring that flowed from the base of North Head into a swamp behind Cheltenham Beach.
