About Normandale

A fabulous place to live – a dormitory suburb where people come for the quality of life, Normandale has community facilities for all ages from playschool to Senior citizens.

The historical road to Pauatahanui is still the physical backbone of our community– winding through well established housing in bush clad hills to rural properties and Belmont Regional Park.

The suburb is dominated by a treescape that conceals housing and brings native birds to your windows.

There is easy access to central city shopping, Library, swimming pools and railway stations.

We have an attractive network of paths and reserves, and easy access to Belmont Regional Park for walking, cycling and horse riding
