The day to day
Quality of life. Most often, it’s about the details of everyday living. From the little things, like knowing the nearest place to pick up a pint of milk, to the bigger things, like choosing the right school, or finding a health centre nearby. You need to know that the community to which 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 town of Wakefield.
Parks and open spaces
Wakefield’s recreational areas include Thornes Park, with its lake and attractive flower-beds, and the superb Pugney’s Country Park, around 5 miles from Fairfield Manor, where there is a 100-acre watersports lake with facilities for canoeing, sailing and windsurfing, a 1.6-mile running or walking track, and a smaller lake which is a designated nature reserve. The River Calder, which runs through the town, also offers pleasant riverside walks. The renowned Yorkshire Sculpture Park is less than six miles away.
Leisure and recreation
Fairfield Manor is located close to the Normanton Golf Club, where the championship parkland course is set in 145 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. For indoor activities, Lightwaves Leisure Centre, around half a mile from the development, provides gym and fitness facilities and amenities for a wide range of sports including, badminton, table tennis, football, volleyball, cricket and athletics. Those looking for a swimming pool there is The Sun Lane Leisure Centre. Even more comprehensive fitness facilities can be found at Rothwell Sports Centre in Oulton, three-and-a-half miles away.

There are eight primary schools within a mile of Fairfield Manor, and a choice of secondary schools, including several independent schools, within easy reach.
Wakefield is a popular shopping centre, with a range of specialist retailers and local shops, as well as high-street names. Trinity Walk is Wakefield’s stunning new shopping centre. With over 60 new shops including all the leading high street fashion brands, a fabulous Debenhams department store and the largest Sainsbury’s superstore in the area, it’s a fantastic day out for everyone of all ages. Whether you’d like to spend hours shopping, stop by to snap up a quick purchase or simply relax and enjoy some food or a drink at one of the shopping centre’s great restaurants, cafés and eateries. The short trip into Leeds opens up an even wider choice.
