This older suburb is lcoated to the east of the late Avenues and Gate Pa. A mix of moderately priced homes and state houses
dominate here. Due to its close proximity to the city and development of the new Fraser Cove Shopping Centre the area is
increasing in popularity for young families and investors. Merivale Primary School and Merivale Community Centre are central to the community. Fraser Cover Shopping Centre offers a wide variety of retail (The Warehouse, Worlds End Sports Bar, Countdown Supermarket, No1 Shoes, Repco) and dining options (Chinese, Fish & Chips, Sushi, bakery / lunch bar, Jesters Pies, Subway, BBs Coffee). Schooling for all ages is nearby along with easy access to other suburban shopping areas.
