Chelsea Park real estate guide & listings for sale
People who prefer a relaxed environment will enjoy Chelsea Park. It is easy to access green spaces since there are a few of them nearby for residents to visit. This part of West Vancouver is also reasonably good for those who need a quiet atmosphere, as there are low levels of noise from traffic - although that is not the case near Trans-Canada Highway.
Driving is a great transportation option in this neighbourhood. Parking is easy, and most real estate listings are a short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Trans-Canada Highway. On the other hand, the public transit network in Chelsea Park is not very practical. This neighbourhood is not very suitable for those who travel by foot as many daily needs are impractical to meet by walking. Chelsea Park is also not very suited for cycling because there is a significant amount of slopes, and the cycling network is not very comprehensive.
