Set within five and a half acres of beautifully maintained gardens and lawns, this Arvida Living Well Community reflects the friendliness, creativity and can-do attitude of New Plymouth.

There’s always something to look forward to here, from captivating arts and crafts sessions through to exciting housie and bowls competitions. Located near the beautiful Waiwhakaiho River in Merrilands, Molly Ryan is close to the local shopping centre and just a six-minute drive from Pukekura Park, with its wonderful lakeside walks and display houses. The restaurants and galleries of downtown New Plymouth are also just a short drive away - handy when heading out with friends or family.

Comfort and companionship in a well-equipped community that lets you be yourself

There’s a full range of accommodation styles at Molly Ryan - villas for independent living, serviced apartments and studios, a warm and inviting rest home, and a hospital for 24-hour care. Paved walkways throughout the community make it easy to visit friends, attend activities and enjoy the park-like setting.

Molly Ryan’s large social lounge acts as a hub for community events like ‘chit chat’ afternoons, happy hour or fish ‘n’ chip nights. If you like to keep fit, there are fitness sessions and a heated swimming pool. To help you stay connected with the wider New Plymouth community, the community van runs a programme of trips for shopping and scenic excursions.
