Situated on the highest point in Cambridge, Lauriston Park is an Arvida Living Well Community with sweeping views of farmland and out to the Pirongia and Te Miro Hills.
In contrast with the community’s iconic Victorian homestead Whare Ora, new buildings feature distinctive contemporary architecture. Award-winning gardens are the finishing touch for one of New Zealand’s most eye-catching senior living communities. The lifestyle at Lauriston Park is equally captivating. Independent residents live in spacious architecturally-designed two and three-bedroom retirement villas with vaulted ceilings, double glazing, heat pumps and outdoor living areas framed by landscaped gardens. Care residents enjoy the comfort of innovative care suites within a purpose-built care centre. From Lauriston Park it’s an easy walk to nearby Leamington village for cafés, shops, supermarket and medical centre. The community is also close to cycling trails that lead to Lake Karapiro.
A community that makes it easy for everyone to feel at home
Take a weight off your shoulders
If you choose independent living at Lauriston Park, you can put your home maintenance days behind you – all the hard work is done for you. If you want to further simplify your life, it’s easy to organise help with housework. You’ll also enjoy the peace of mind that comes from having a 24-hour monitored emergency call system and security patrols a night.
Aged care now part of our community
Our brand-new care centre with care suites opened in June 2023. We can now provide Arvida's unique approach to rest home, hospital-level and specialised dementia care, the Attitude of Living WellTM to residents and the wider community.
