About this space

The 'Roskill Box' is a free space, bookable by anyone within the area or supporting local community. This is a unique venue, for an event or activity including meetings, social enterprises and temporary office space. It can even be used for pop-up retail, market space, youth space or a small gathering like play dates, for toddlers and parents! Whatever you have in mind, get in touch with us and see how we can help. There is also a basketball court, park, with a bike track, that goes around the park, right across the road.

*Please note: this space is also a pātaka kai & library, accessible at all times. Whilst using the space, be mindful that people may walk in and out to grab books or from our non-perishable items, during your booking.

This venue is provided by Roskill Development, as part of Kāinga Ora, to support the community through the changes that are happening in the neighbourhood.
