Parksyde was opened in August 2001 as an event centre for the 55+ age groups and was one of the Rotorua Energy Charitable Trusts millennium projects.
Parksyde is owned and operated by the Older Persons charitable Trust and is the only one of its kind in the country.
We are not a retirement village or a day care centre for the elderly but simply an Event Centre providing activities for the 55+age group.
No membership is required; a small fee is charged for each activity, no children please.
We have a full commercial Kitchen catering for lunches and functions and is available for hire.
We are open between the hours of 9.00 am – 3.00 pm Monday to Friday, please note some activities and functions are outside these hours, we are not open on Public holidays.
We are closed from 22nd Dec 2017 and reopen 22th Jan 2018
Parksyde is proud to be supported by the following groups
Rotorua Energy Charitable Trust
The Southern Trust
First Sovereign Trust
Rotorua District Council
Rotary Club of Rotorua Lakes
