Valued in the community
Union Gardens is located in Heckmondwike, a small town between Leeds and Huddersfield. Heckmondwike Town Centre is less than a mile away and has a range of shops, cafes and a large supermarket. There’s also a health centre with a GP surgery and pharmacy, a post office and a library.
Leeds is easily accessed by car or public transport, and offers a huge range of shops, restaurants, cultural attractions and leisure facilities. For those who enjoy the outdoors, Dewsbury Park is nearby and offers woodland walks by the river.
“Union Gardens is a beautiful new build property in its own cul-de-sac close to the busy towns of Heckmondwike and Dewsbury. There is an experienced and varied staff team who support individuals to maintain and increase their independence and pursue the activities they enjoy.”
