Welcome to Parksyde Community Centre for 55 plus

Catering for the social, recreational, health and educational needs of our older people in Rotorua and the surrounding district.

See What’s On





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.

Opening Hours

We are open between the hours of 9.00 am – 5.00 pm Monday to Friday, please note some activities and functions are outside these hours, we are not open on Public holidays.


Parksyde is proud to be supported by the following groups

Rotorua Energy Charitable Trust

Bay Trust
