"Family Friendly"

Springfield is a fantastic, family friendly suburb.
Ideal for first home buyers and young families.
Nestled in a quiet location out the back of Erina, just a few minutes drive to Erina Fair, where there is an abundance of shopping options, restaurants, cafs and a cinema, and about a five to ten minute drive to Terrigal for the beach.
Chertsey Primary School is the heart of the Springfield community.
It's the only mainstream school on the Central Coast with two small support classes for Deaf and hard of hearing children.
The students are taught sign language alongside their Deaf and hearing impaired school friends, and the spirit of kindness and acceptance there is like nothing I've ever seen anywhere else.
Springfield is surrounded by quality child care, public and private schooling options.
Rumbalara Reserve offers beautiful bush tracks and picnic spots for families.
A quiet, friendly community, ideally located centrally to everything the Central Coast has to offer, and affordable housing prices to boot.
Absolutely love it here.
Pros
  • Childrens playground
  • Close to shops, beachs, transport
  • Great family atmosphere
  • Neighbourly spirit
  • Low crime rates
  • Playgrounds, reserves, picnic spots, bush walking

"great area to bring up children"

This house i noticed is in a dead end street but not far for a short walk to the new park area.
Close to Erina fair. Friendly local bus drivers at end of street.
This house is in the newer area and is a short walk to the school who specialise in deaf childrens schooling.
I love to stay in the area, it has some great walking trails as is near nature tracks/walks.
regards

"great place to live for anyone"

located approx 15-20 minutes from either the gosford or ourimbah f3 exits. springfield is a neatly tucked away suburb which hugs the hillside and lower parts between gosford (to its west) and the suburb of erina (to the east).

beautifully quiet in the 'heights' areas, backing onto the rumabalra reserve which stretches west to gosford and north to nth gosford. bell birds and native wild life, maybe the odd bush turkey. nice friendly laid back environment, great neighbours. close to erina fair shopping centre (less than 3 min drive) which is the largest on the coast and includes cinema, restaurants, and plenty of retail outlets.
15-20 min drive to beaches & terrigal. nightlife pretty quiet, but there are plenty of clubs nearby, along with the elanora pub (3 min drive ) or the woodport pub same time in other direction which also has a nightclub and attracts some touring bands. several public and high schools in the area, parks and sporting facilities.

"Lovely if your in the right area"

Springfield is a wonderful place to bring up a family - If your in the right area. It can be divided into two areas - the housing development and the newer area. The new area is safe and friendly, be aware though of the housing development area.

lyle0 Hey Kim,

Useful comment. Where does the newer area end/housing development begin?

Thanks

haleyj Housing area is only a few streets, and it's relatively quiet. Sherwood Dr and surrounding streets. I lived in a private rental property amongst the housing for three years before buying my home a few streets away and never had any problem. You get a few roughies wherever you go, and Springfield is no different.
