While we may be a small population, we have a big community spirit. Our village offers a range of community groups and facilities that help make Maungatapere a great place to live and play.
Whatever your passion, Maungatapere offers the perfect lifestyle fit. Our population is big enough to support ground-breaking ambitions and small enough for genuine connection.
Our community is growing, you can help us flourish.
Whether you’re looking for a sports group, a place to have an event, or a way to meet new people, we have brought all our incredible community groups and facilities into one place - so you can easily find what it is you’re looking for

Pātaka Kai, Community Food Pantry
There's a Pātaka Kai outside the Office Cafe, Corner Mangakahia Road & SH14.
This is a Community Food Pantry where you can take what you need and leave what you can. Any excess orchard or garden supplies are always welcomed.
It belongs to all of us, so we all should look after it. Just keep an eye on it and keep it tidy, The pātaka is only for food - non perishables, fruit & veges from your gardens. Please don’t leave any big boxes or rubbish behind.
There are three community Lilliput Libraries.
Outside the Office Cafe, corner SH14 & 14,

The books are free for anyone to take away. You don’t have to become a member of Lilliput Libraries, you don’t need to return the books. We encourage you to take a book now, return or donate one later.
