Waitakere City is a former territorial authority district in the west of Auckland, New Zealand, which was governed by the Waitakere City Council from 1989 to 2010. It was New Zealand's fifth largest city, with an annual growth of about 2%. In 2010 the council was amalgamated with other regional authorities into one new Auckland Council.

The name "Waitakere" came originally from a Māori chief and was applied to a village near the northern boundary of the city, and then to the county that covered much of the later city.
