Naenae

Naenae.jpg

Location

Naenae is a dream suburb for first home buyers and families seeking affordable housing with shops and services at their doorstep. More than 8000 people live in the community which is about 2% of the Wellington Region (Dominion Post, 2011, Section C1). Naenae is only four kilometers away from the Lower Hutt CBD (Wikipedia).  

Facilities

As well as being only a few minutes away from Lower Hutt City, Naenae has its own shopping centre, a supermarket, a large hardware store and one of Wellingtons last remaining suburban post offices. Community facilities include an Olympic-sized swimming pool, library and schooling for all ages (Dominion Post, 2011, Section C1).

Naenae is great for people who love being active, whether indoors or outdoors. Naenae boasts a 50m (divided into 2 x 25metres) pool that includes a hydro slide, a fun zone children’s area, aqua jogging, a fitness suite and more. We have a petanque court, outdoor bowls, a badminton hall, and public tennis courts. Within the last year HCC have created a skate park, popular with our younger residents. Naenae’s Boxing Academy is a well regarding academy, mentoring and supporting youth. We have Naenae Park with its own club room

The suburb operates an excellent bus transport system and connects with both Wellington and Upper Hutt bound trains. The mix of facilities and affordability distinguishes Naenae from other suburbs. Traditionally it’s been underrated but is on the cusp of rediscovery as more buyers and investors recognise its advantages (Dominion Post, 2011, Section C1). Naenae is starting to blossom and is a great suburb for a family to start out in.  

Interesting fact:

Interestingly enough, many of you, including residents that have lived in the area for years, may not know how the name “Naenae” originated. Naenae as a basic translation from Maori means “mosquito” or “sandfly” recalling a time prior to the draining of the area, when the mosquito population predominated the area which was originally a swamp.  The land eventually dried out (due to a major earthquake in 1885) which made way for the market gardens that existed right up until the start of the Second World War and ultimately the suburban area it is now.

History

Prior to WWII, Naenae was predominately a rural area consisting of small farms and market gardens. After the war, the demand for rental housing increased as servicemen returned and the government designated the area for state housing. Naenae grew between 1945 and 1956 and much of the state housing fates to this time. However, the suburbs have been slowly transforming as private residents purchase and redevelop dwellings that were previously owned by the state.
