Box Grove real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Box Grove is exemplified by its slower-paced environment. This part of the city is fairly good for those who like quiet surroundings, as the streets are calm - although there are still several louder sections, especially near one of the railway lines or Highway 407. Finally, there are a few parks nearby for residents to explore, making it easy to reach them.
Getting around by car is especially convenient in Box Grove. Nearby highways, such as Highway 407, are reasonably easy to reach from any location in this neighbourhood, and it is especially convenient to come across a parking spot.
