Unique design meets picture perfect 

Riccarton Park Village is selling now and will offer a contemporary village design set in picture perfect surroundings. The village will be unique to anything Ryman has built in Canterbury before.

Nestled alongside Riccarton Racecourse, the village overlooks the racecourse, a feature pond and lush manicured gardens. So, even if racing isn’t your thing, the tranquil setting surely will be. Situated to the west of Christchurch city, the village will also enjoy views to the iconic Port Hills, and with Yaldhurst Road running parallel to the village, you’ll have a direct route to the heart of the city.

Townhouses feature a contemporary design aesthetic with asymmetrical exterior roofs. The village itself offers a newly designed café, a viewing lounge and bar that overlook the pond, and scenic pathways and gardens that weave their way around the village. Everywhere you turn there’s something to see.

The village will provide independent living in apartments and townhouses, assisted living in serviced apartments, as well as a state-of-the-art care centre that includes resthome, hospital and specialist dementia care. So, if down the track your needs change, we can continue to look after you.

As for convenience, Avonhead Mall and Bush Inn Mall are close by offering an endless choice of shops, amenities and cafés, plus Christchurch airport is merely 3.5km from the village. For a little weekend entertainment, the golf driving range is just next door, and the bowling club and Sunday Riccarton Market are both located within the neighbouring racecourse grounds.

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.
