Please take the time to consider this popular jewel of a village within an exceptional location, close to a central community. This stunning retirement oasis is home to a welcoming community of active retirees surrounded by lovely gardens, fountains and scenic panoramic outlooks. With Minogue Park on our doorstep, the village enjoys front seat views of Te Rapa Racecourse, not to mention fantastic walks, while Raglan’s wind farm and Mt Pirongia form a distant backdrop.

Flat and wide streets sweeping along magnificent grounds and quaint cul de sacs, blended with independent villas and apartments, provides safe cycling and walking within the village.

We’d like to invite you to stay a while and explore all that’s offered at Forest Lake Gardens. Within these beautifully established grounds lies a vibrant community with the promise of new friendships and the opportunity to pursue new interests. Popular ‘hangouts’ like Raceview Café & Restaurant and communal lounges, which harmonises with the fantastic views, is a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle. So, come along to our next open day or visit us on any day between 10am and 4pm, we welcome walk-ins any time– feel free to bring family and friends if you wish.

Forest Lake Gardens is part of Metlifecare, one of the largest retirement village operators in New Zealand.

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.


In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet.
