Aro Valley Community Centre at the heart of Aro Valley
Who we are!
Welcome to the Aro Valley Community Centre!
At our public space in the heart of Aro Park, you’ll find a friendly and welcoming environment. We run a great range of activities – regular classes, events and services that reflect the needs and interests of our diverse and multicultural community.
Our aim is to enhance the lives of the people living in the Aro Valley. So whether you want to get fit, learn a language, develop your musical talents − or just give Lola the much loved Aro Park tabby cat a cuddle − there’s something for everyone. And because the Aro Valley Community Council operates as a non-profit organisation, many activities at the Centre are low cost or entry by koha.

Join us for the capital's cutest community get-together, the Aro Valley Fair!
Aro Fair 2021 promises another glorious, family friendly day of entertainment and community spirit with the main live music stage in the park and an acoustic stage and Foodcourt on the basketball court from 10am – 5pm on 13 March 2021.
Craft stalls, Food stalls, Oddity stalls (you name it, we've got it!), will set up in Aro Park and the community center grounds for the greatest little fair at the end of the Welly Summer.
The iconic AroLympics will be back once again for another year, with the infamous torch ceremony opening the events on Fri evening, ready for an all out Battle Royale to see which street will take the coveted win on the day!
We have some special guests and a few new competition rounds to add to this annual event so Aro-ites, get your street team together and get ready to compete!
AroLympics start 1pm, and is set to be an explosive display of strength, power and talent, with classic faves such as the water-balloon toss, tug of war and limbo making their comeback, and some controversial new games designed to keep our Aro athletes on their toes (sometimes quite literally)!
Get involved in the happenings of beautiful Aro Valley, we would love to have you along!
