This part of the city is also very good for those who like quiet surroundings, as the streets tend to be very calm.

The majority of houses for sale are a reasonably short drive from the nearest highway, and it is very convenient to come across a parking spot.

Travelling on foot is not very practical for home buyers in this neighbourhood since very few daily needs can be met without the use of a vehicle. In contrast, Barrhaven is suited for cycling since the bicycling infrastructure is great.
