Residents of Northcote are never far from the harbour or some green space. Between them, Northcote and its neighbouring suburb, Birkenhead, have over 90 parks and reserves.
Northcote's community facilities include a library, community centre, early learning centre and contemporary art gallery. It has good transport links, with further improvements planned for buses.
As part of the development, a greenway will be formed. This strip of park will give residents an attractive walking and cycling path that links the neighbourhood to Lake Road and the town centre.
The library is a magnet for all ages.
