Waitangirua neighbourhood sits on the eastern side of Bothamley Park. Warspite Avenue runs through the middle of Waitangirua linking it to Cannon’s Creek and Rānui town centres.
Waitangirua shows the vibrancy of eastern Porirua with buildings in its town centre decorated with local artwork. These can be seen at the regular Saturday markets.
For the purposes of planning Waitangirua has been divided into two ‘development neighbourhoods’:
- Waitangirua North
- Waitangirua South
