Special Features
Bainfield Park is situated on an attractive elevated setting of 9 acres on the outskirts of Invercargill. The property is well established as bush-land to the south, with sprawling lawns leading to farm-land to the north.

Our location enables us to be close to all city facilities including a shopping centre, supermarket, churches, doctors and public transportation. We do however, also have the advantage of the tranquility of our rural setting without close neighbours and city hustle and bustle.

The entire building has an approved sprinkler and fire evacuation system for added protection and staff are available 24 hours per day to meet the needs of the Residents.
