This part of the city is good for those who like a quiet atmosphere, as the streets are generally quite tranquil - although that is not the case near the railway line. Lastly, it is easy to get to public green spaces in the neighbourhood since there are approximately 10 of them nearby for residents to explore.
Driving is an excellent transportation option in Diver Lake. Nearby highways are reasonably easy to drive to from any location in this part of the city, and it is very convenient to park. In contrast, public transit riders may experience few options in Diver Lake due to the service's low frequency. Nevertheless, there are a few bus lines passing through the neighbourhood, and most properties are near a bus stop. Walking is not very convenient for residents in Diver Lake since most daily needs are at times challenging to carry out without the use of a vehicle.
