Bendale real estate guide & listings for sale
Bendale offers a relaxed environment and will appeal to those who enjoy spending time outdoors. This part of Toronto is reasonably quiet, as there are low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several noisier areas, especially around Highway 401 or the railway line. Finally, there is a fair amount of greenery in this area; public green spaces, like Frank Faubert Wood Lot and Thomson Memorial Park, are very well-distributed and there are about 20 of them close by for residents to enjoy, which makes it very easy to reach them. Residents will also find that numerous tree-lined streets are around.
Bendale enables house buyers to get around by a diversity of means of transportation. Owing to 2 rapid transit stations (McCowan Station and Scarborough Station) on the Scarborough Line, and approximately 20 nearby bus lines, commuting by public transit is very convenient in Bendale. This neighbourhood is also a fairly pleasant part of Toronto for pedestrians; many daily needs are convenient to meet on foot. Even though bicycling is better in certain pockets than others, the bike is a sometimes poor method of transportation in Bendale since bicycle riders are faced with a considerable amount of elevation changes, and the cycling infrastructure is not especially well-developed.
