Mt Eden Prison

Location ID: #094-10130222
The old Mt Eden prison exterior. Exterior view of the old prison. Mount Eden Prisons consists of two separate facilities in the Auckland, New Zealand suburb of Mount Eden — the Mount Eden Prison and the Mount Eden Corrections Facility. The historic prison has housed prisoners since 1888 and its design and functionality are outdated and the deteriorating condition of the buildings makes it difficult to keep prisoners securely and humanely contained. In 2008 a decision was made to redevelop the site and create a single integrated prison called the Mount Eden Corrections Facility. The Department of Corrections says that when the new facility is fully operational, the historic prison will be emptied and "mothballed" in case extra prison capacity is required in future.
