When it comes to leisure, Blackpool is truly unrivaled, with everything from the Winter Gardens and Grand Theatre to an Odeon Cinema, plus countless bars, restaurants and clubs. You’ll be spoiled for choice for a great family day out, with everything from the animals of Blackpool Zoo to the thrills of Blackpool Pleasure Beach; the stunning tower to the three traditional piers, all close at hand. For a quieter day out, there are miles of glorious coastline to explore, with endless safe, family friendly beaches perfect for a fun summer afternoon.

Oldfield Park is privileged to be within walking distance of no less than three OFSTED ‘Outstanding’ primary schools, at The Breck Primary, St John’s Catholic Primary and St Chad’s CofE Primary. The development also backs on to the ‘Outstanding’ Hodgson Academy, a mixed comprehensive and sixth form, with the ‘Good’ Baines School just a short bus ride away. With such a fine selection of local state schools, you may not feel the need to invest in independent education, however, if you prefer the private sector, Kirkham Grammar, Bispham High and the Rossall School in Fleetwood all offer excellent alternatives, although all involve a significant journey.
