Retirement living with a view to the action

Riccarton Park Village is coming soon. Situated to the west of Christchurch city, Riccarton Park Village is nestled alongside Riccarton Racecourse, giving you front row seats to the racing action and views to the iconic Port Hills. Running parallel to the racecourse is Yaldhurst Road, providing a direct route to the heart of the city.

Westfield Riccarton and Hornby shopping Malls are close by offering an endless choice of shops, amenities, cafés and restaurants, and Christchurch airport is merely 3.5km from the village. As for weekends, you don’t have to venture far for entertainment. The golf driving range is just next door, plus the bowling club and the Sunday Riccarton Market are both located within the same racecourse grounds.

Community is central to the lifestyle at a Ryman village and the scenic pathways and pocket parks that weave their way around Riccarton Park village promote a feeling of connection to your like-minded neighbours. As for the views, take your pick – the racecourse, the feature pond, bowling green or lush manicured gardens. It could be easy to forget that you’re actually in a really convenient city location.

Ryman Pioneers Freedom

Riccarton Park Village will offer living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our apartments and townhouses are light and spacious, with clean lines and a clever open plan design layout that provides an easy flow throughout.

If down the track you need more support, we offer assisted living in a serviced apartment and a full range of care options. That freedom and flexibility is empowering for residents and knowing care can be dialled up as needed means, quite simply, ‘no worries’. It's all part of what we like to call the Ryman Difference


Our pioneering approach to retirement living includes resident-friendly terms designed to protect you and your family. Our base weekly fee is fixed for the entire time you occupy your apartment or townhouse*, and our deferred management fee is capped at 20 percent – one of the lowest in the retirement sector.

These are just some of the ways we’re pioneering a new way of living for a new retirement generation.

*Some conditions apply. 


Enjoy all the upsides of living independently in a Ryman village. Easy living, security, plus a huge bonus – the support of a vibrant village community.


Serviced apartments come with support you can count on. A chef-prepared meal, housekeeping – it's great for you and reassuring for your family.  


It's hard to put your finger on why Ryman villages just feel different. For the inside knowledge, check out our guide.

Pioneers Care


Care is not an ‘add on’ at a Ryman village, it is built into the fabric of our villages from the very beginning. It’s comforting for couples and friends to know they can still be near each other even if their health needs are different.

Riccarton Park Village care centre will offer a full range of care options including resthome, hospital and specialist dementia care. Like all aspects of our villages, we constantly look for ways to improve both the care we provide and the innovation behind it. Care is customised using our myRyman care app and residents love the food in our seasonal Delicious menu, which is prepared fresh on site by village chefs. 


Personal attention, warmth and building trusting relationships are all crucial to the customised care we provide at our care centres.


Nurturing and caring dementia care communities. Residents are supported to live in the moment, and to feel kindness, love, and security.


It's hard to put your finger on why Ryman care centres just feel different. For the inside knowledge, check out our care guide.
