Alpine real estate guide & listings for sale
A highlight of Alpine is its wide selection of green spaces. Parks, such as Peter Hallman Ballyard and Sportsplex and Laurentian Trail, are especially well-situated and there are a few of them close by for residents to unwind in, which results in them being very easy to get to from most locations in this area. It is relatively calm in this part of Kitchener, due to the presence of very few pedestrians.
Driving is a great medium of transportation in this area. It is very easy to find a parking spot, and most properties for sale are a very short car ride from the closest highway, such as Highway 7. In contrast, the public transit service in Alpine is fairly poor. Nevertheless, house owners have access to a few bus lines, and bus stops are generally nearby. Although a few enjoyable pockets for bicycling exist, bicycling is at times challenging in Alpine because the bicycling infrastructure is sometimes poor, and there are a fair number of elevation changes. It is also at times challenging for pedestrians to navigate this part of Kitchener as few daily errands can be run on foot.
In Alpine, roughly 30% of dwellings are small apartment buildings, but large apartment buildings, single detached homes, and townhouses are also present in the housing stock.

Most of the housing growth in this neighbourhood occurred between 1960 and 1980.
Parents and their children will value that wherever their property is situated in this part of Kitchener, primary schools are close by. On the other hand, Alpine does not have any high schools. In terms of food, it is convenient to get to the nearest supermarket by walking in Alpine. Additionally, those who like to dine in restaurants will have a good number of options, and house buyers can enjoy a few cafes as well.
