Living in Wakefield
Quality of life is about the details of everyday living. From the little things, like knowing the nearest place to pick up a pint of milk, to more important matters like finding the right school or having a health centre nearby, you need to know that the community you’re moving to will support you and your family, as well as being a pleasant place to live. So here’s some useful information about the area around City Fields..
Perfectly situated for the amenities and attractions of Wakefield, City Fields also has easy access to the M1 and M62 and is well within commuting range of Leeds. There are excellent bus services into the city centre, some of them serving Pinderfields Hospital which is virtually adjacent to the development, and Wakefield benefits from good rail links. Of the two railway stations, each less than a mile and a half away, Westgate is on the Leeds to London route, with journey times of less than 15 minutes to Leeds and two hours to London Kings Cross, while Kirkgate serves stations to Sheffield and Nottingham.
The city of Wakefield presents a superb choice of cultural and leisure attractions set against a background of fascinating architecture and heritage, including the magnificent Wakefield Cathedral and Sandal Castle. In addition to visual arts at the Hepworth, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and several smaller galleries, the Theatre Royal presents an eclectic programme of drama and music, and the new Unity Works is a vibrant venue for social gatherings and live music. There is an excellent choice of cinemas, bars, restaurants and nightlife, including soul nights at the celebrated Red Bar.
Wakefield’s sporting and leisure provision include the superb Pugneys Watersports Centre and Country Park on the southern edge of the town, where there are facilities for sailing, windsurfing and canoeing, and the choice of leisure centres in the area includes Sun Lane Leisure, where there is a 25m swimming pool, a fitness suite and a gym. Other amenities nearby include Normanton Golf Club, around a mile to the north, and Pontefract Racecourse is less than ten miles away.
Local shops include a newsagent within Pinderfields General Hospital, a few minutes walk from City Fields, and there is also a small shopping area in Windhill Road with a pharmacist, a post office and a convenience store. The city centre offers a very wide choice of high street chains, malls and traditional shops in traffic-free streets, and a major recycling centre in Denby Dale Road, two and a half miles away, accepts virtually all household packaging, electrical items and clothing.
City Fields is in the catchment areas for Stanley Grove Primary and Nursery School and St Austin’s RC Primary, both within a mile of the development, and pupils normally move on to either Outwood Grange Academy or St Thomas à Becket RC College for secondary education. There is a large full-time GP practice at New Southgate Surgery, approximately a mile away, and Pinderfields General Hospital, just yards from City Fields, operates a round-the-clock A&E department.
