Downtown real estate guide & listings for sale

This part of Prince George is quiet overall, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although there are still several louder areas, especially around the railway line. Lastly, getting to public green spaces from most locations in the neighbourhood, like Connaught Hill Park, is very easy since there are approximately 10 of them close by for residents to unwind in.
This area is very car friendly. It is especially convenient to park. However, commuting by transit can be challenging in Downtown by reason of the low service level. Thankfully, property owners are served by about 10 bus lines, and the closest bus stop is generally very close. This part of Prince George is not especially conducive to walking since few daily errands can be run without needing to resort to a car.
