Cumberland real estate guide & listings for sale
Cumberland is very quiet overall, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour. Accessing public green spaces, like Cardinal Creek Valley and Valin Park, is rather difficult from most locations in the neighbourhood since they are distributed sporadically. Still, there are a few parks close by for residents to visit.
Driving is a great transportation option in Cumberland. It is very convenient to park. In contrast, Cumberland is not very transit friendly. Nevertheless, the neighbourhood is served by a few bus lines. Cumberland is not very suited for bicycling since there are a fair number of elevation changes, and there are very few bike lanes. A majority of the homes for sale in this neighbourhood are located in areas that are also not very convenient for walking because most daily needs are very difficult to meet on foot.
About one quarter of homes in Cumberland were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1980s.

Roughly 90% of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners while the remainder are rented. This area is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes.
This part of the city does not contain any high schools or primary schools. Likewise, daycares are not numerous and therefore may require a very long walk to get to. With respect to food, property owners in this neighbourhood almost always need a vehicle to travel to the closest grocery store.
