Greenwoods Corner Epsom Spring Festival 2023 proved to be a huge success and was very well attended. It was wonderful to see so many people enjoying the sunshine, entertainment, activities, food, stalls and specials on offer throughout the day.
Thank you to our local businesses, to the local community and to the Albert Eden Local Board for the immense support shown for the event. Thanks also to everyone that gave generously to EGGS’ rowing fundraiser and those of you that purchased the delicious treats on offer at the Gardner Road Kindergarten bake sale.
Special thanks goes to the Tongan Methodist Choir for their energetic and uplifting performance, the Epsom & Eden District Historical Society for their expert guided historical walk of Greenwoods Corner on the day and their generous giveaway of Dr Helen Laurenson’s book “The History of Mount Eden – the district and its people”, to Circability Juggling School for teaching us the art of juggling and of course to our skilled face painters.
We look forward to the event becoming an annual fixture on the Auckland calendar.
Scheduled events throughout the day:

On Monday, 31st July, Greenwoods Corner Epsom Business Association and the Epsom & Eden District Historical Society held a launch party for the Greenwoods Corner Epsom Historical Walk.
The event was well attended and many stories about the local area were shared and enjoyed over a glass of wine.
The aim of the walk is to celebrate our local history and encourage people of all ages to explore our wonderful community through the use of an accessible, free-to-use mobile app. Please click here for the Our Auckland News Article published about the walk for further information.
Thank you to everyone that contributed towards the creation of this walk and to all of those that came along to celebrate the launch.
It is with great pleasure that Greenwoods Corner Epsom Business Association and the Epsom and Eden District Historical Society announce the creation of their joint initiative, the “Greenwoods Corner Epsom Historical Walk”.
The self-guided walk features fourteen key historical sites in and around Greenwoods Corner. Historical narratives, photographs, advertisements and audio clips have been uploaded for individual stop locations onto a purpose-built, free to use mobile App.
Stainless steel plaques for many of the stops have been installed along the route, which is centred on Manukau Road, between the Epsom Methodist Church to the south and the former Tram Barns to the north.
The history of each stop on the walk is accessible either by scanning the QR code on the plaque at each location, by scrolling through each stop on the App or simply by clicking on the pins dropped along the App’s mapped route.
We encourage everyone to walk around and explore the rich history on display in Greenwoods Corner.
It is hard to believe quite how much has been achieved in the three short years that Greenwoods Corner Epsom Business Association has been in operation.
On 29th May 2023, the business association held its annual general meeting and networking event during which the executive committee provided members with a run-down of their recently completed initiatives and upcoming projects.
With a number of small-scale and large-scale events coming to fruition in 2023 - 2024, the future of Greenwoods Corner looks bright.
The executive committee is confident that with these initiatives coming into being, positive outcomes will be achieved for both local business and local residents.
The business association would like to thank both the Albert-Eden Local Board for its continued and unwavering support and the local volunteers that sit on and outside of the executive committee.
Thank you also to our host, Gaylene Brownlie, for once again allowing us to hold the meeting and networking event at Gardner Road Kindergarten and to all of our members that joined us to exchange ideas.
