Paremoremo is located within easy commuting distance of Auckland City, and just 8 minutes from the growing centre of Albany. The community is made up of around 2000 residents. Many families have been attracted to the area by the rural lifestyle on offer on the edge of New Zealand’s fastest growing city, Albany. There is a mixture of properties ranging from ½ acre residential properties through to 5-10 acre lifestyle blocks.
About 2000 people live in the Paremoremo area and most homes are occupied by families, many with children (2006 Census). Ridgeview School is the local primary school which has around 70 students and can boast some excellent sporting and academic achievements. The area is zoned for Albany Junior and Senior High.
The Community Club which is owned by the Corrections Department has been generously made available to the school and community over the past few years. The local community is particularly active with a range of activities and events available for local people to engage in. There is even a resident local band in the area that regularly plays at the Club. More recently the Sustainable Paremoremo Project has brought together many of the locals to enhance the local natural environment and incorporate more sustainable living practices into their everyday living.
Paremoremo has many sites of special environmental value to the North Shore area including põhutukawa and mangrove-fringed coastline, unbroken tracts of kauri forest and pristine streams. Many of these important habitats are on private land. In 2002 North Shore City Council bought a 40-hectare site to be developed as a recreational area: Sanders Reserve.
Kereru, tui, kingfisher, fantail, silvereye, welcome swallow and grey warbler inhabit the area and Paremoremo Scenic Reserve is the largest bush reserve on the North Shore.
