The Gardens at Wakefield retirement community offers a peaceful senior living experience less than 15 miles from all the action in downtown Raleigh, NC. Our independent living community is located in a lovely neighborhood near a variety of local amenities. Stroll past the school next door to reach several shopping centers home to a wine shop, multiple markets, restaurants and movie cinemas, and a cozy Italian cafe. All are just a half-mile from the community.

Residents also enjoy all the cultural perks of living in a capital city. The North Carolina Museum of Art, with its dazzling monument garden, is only 15 miles away. Visiting grandkids will love the dinosaurs on display at downtown’s North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and the hands-on exhibits at the Marbles Kids Museum, just a few blocks away. 

The Gardens at Wakefield is an award-winning, independent senior living community. Awards include the 2020 Great Place to Work certification and the 2019 Great Place to Work certification.
