Freemans Bay | Ponsonby | Grey Lynn Apartments
Freemans Bay is a very desirable suburb on the city fringe of Auckland, within walking distance to the city and Ponsonby. The area has a mix of heritage homes and modern apartments and is home to two beautiful large established parks - Victoria Park & Western Park .
Victoria Park Market is an iconic Victorian brick building & tower built in 1918 as a refuse station, and the chimney was used for burning the city’s rubbish! The building now houses mainly shops selling crafts, souvenir & clothing and a weekend market.
Ponsonby is descirbed as Aucklands "hippest" strip and is an extremely desirable area to live, only 2km west of the Auckland CBD. Until the 1980's, Ponsonby had mainly run down buildings, but the area has gone under extensive redevelopment and is now mostly an upper-middle class suburb.
Ponsonby Road is well known for its cafes, restaurants and bars offering food from around the world. The road also has many up-market shops, art galleries and vibrant nightclubs.
