Park Lane

35 Whiteleigh Avenue, Addington, Christchurch

A new vision for retirement living

  • Independent living: Villas & apartments
  • Assisted living: Serviced apartments & studios
  • Full time care: Rest home & hospital care

At Park Lane, life is about positive ageing, keeping fit, learning new skills, expressing creativity and staying connected to the wider neighbourhood.

Set amidst tall oak trees and beautifully landscaped grounds, Park Lane’s contemporary accommodation, recreational facilities, shared gardens and community spaces are matched by a holistic approach to helping our residents live their best life. While Park Lane is revolutionary in some regards, it offers the proven continuum of care that Arvida is famous for. From independent villas and serviced apartments through to modern care rooms for rest home and hospital-level care, almost every type of living arrangement is available. A highlight for independent living is the new ergonomically-designed Living Well apartments, which are linked to recreational and social facilities by timber decks and garden walkways.

A contemporary way of life that embraces electric cars, sustainability and voluntary work

You have the option of giving up car ownership if choose to live at Park Lane. Independent residents have free use of our electric vehicles, which are even easier to drive than regular cars. Another way we’re breaking the mould is involving residents with the smooth running of the community. You are encouraged to get involved with organising activities and excursions. You can also help out with special initiatives, like market days and outdoor projects. When you have a great idea that enhances community life, others will be keen to help you make it happen.

Right next door to Park Lane is the innovative Arvida Good Friends Living Well Centre, complete with swimming pool, gym, fitness classes, health services and much more. This centre is designed to help older Cantabrians live well. All Park Lane residents have complimentary Moving Well Memberships to Arvida Good Friends, so they can use the gym and pool during opening hours

Arvida. Living a life with soul.
