It is a multicultural area, often with large families, with the suburb dominated by brick-and-tile homes built in the 1960s-1970s.
In 2019, the name of the suburb was officially gazetted as Māngere Bridge.
Te Puea Marae, the local marae, is a tribal meeting ground for the Waikato Tainui hapū of Ngāti Kuiaarangi, Ngāti Mahuta, Ngāti Tai and Ngāti Whāwhākia. It includes a meeting house, also called Te Puea. The marae has helped hundreds of homeless people find housing, through a philosophy of manaakitanga.
Mangere Bridge is home to Onehunga-Mangere United football club.
