Woodridge is one of the northern suburbs of Wellington, New Zealand, north of Newlands and Paparangi.

History[edit]

Wrightway Homes developed the suburb[when?] after Norman Wright bought the Newlands dairy farm from JS Meadowcroft (who also owned Broadmeadows). The family chose trees and wood as a theme, and most streets bear the names of trees. By 2011 about half the planned houses or 200 homes had been built. A land exchange with the WCC allowed for development of a walkway to Seton Nossiter Park.[2][3]
