Unsworth Reserve is to the east.[1]

The population of the Unsworth Heights statistical area was 5,169 in the 2006 census, an increase of 549 from 2001. The statistical area includes The Palms and Meadowood.[2]

Education[edit]

Westminster Christian School was established in 1981 to provide education for children of Christian families, using a Christ-centred curriculum founded on a Biblical World View. It is an inter-denominational, state-integrated, co-educational, full primary school for students from New Entrant to Year 8. The school roll in 2017 sits around 300.

The school is set on a sunny, 2 ½ hectare site in Albany, on Auckland’s North Shore. The clean environment and well-established trees provide a peaceful backdrop to modern buildings, classrooms and playgrounds.
