With two major shopping centres, Takanini Town Centre and Southgate Shopping Centre, the thriving suburb has incredible access to all amenities.
Takanini has several suburban-style housing complexes in the area. The addition of these developments has increased local property values. Takanini is a diverse suburb with the northwestern area being almost entirely industrial.
The Southern Motorway is easily accessible in Takanini and Public transport options are plentiful with the Takanini Train Station linking the suburb to the greater Auckland suburbs and Auckland’s CBD.
Takanini is home to Bruce Pulman Park – one of South Auckland’s major sporting facilities. The park features a gymnastics stadium, the Counties-Manukau indoor stadium for Netball, Basketball and Volleyball, and a number of rugby fields. Another sporting highlight in the suburb is the NZ Sikh Sports Complex.
