About Selwyn Park, Whangarei

 Selwyn Park is set on a 4.20 hectare (10.2 acre) site, seven kilometres from Whangarei city centre, in its own glorious park-like grounds surrounded by suburban housing. Established in 1967, Selwyn Park is surrounded by flat grasslands, with mature trees and a native bush backdrop populated by puriris, kowhai and native birds.

There are around 100 people living on site, including those in hospital and rest home care.
