Castlegar is especially car friendly. It is a reasonably short drive to the closest highway from anywhere in Castlegar, and coming across a place to park is generally easy. It is very impractical for pedestrians to navigate this city because almost no daily needs can be carried out by walking.
In Castlegar, most dwellings are single detached homes, and the rest of the houses are mainly townhouses. This city is primarily composed of three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. About 80% of the units in the city are occupied by homeowners and the remainder are rented. Roughly 45% of homes in this city were constructed between 1960 and 1980, while most of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1990s.
High schools and primary schools are not especially plentiful in this city, and therefore not always within walking distance. Additionally, it can be challenging to reach daycares as a pedestrian. With respect to food, some, but not all, property owners in Castlegar will live within walking distance of the closest supermarket. A small variety of restaurants is available in Castlegar as well.
