Green spaces are sparse, which makes them rather challenging to access from many locations in this part of Saint John. Still, residents will be able to access parks in nearby neighbourhoods.
Driving is usually the best way to get around in Forest Hills. It is especially convenient to park. Many of the homes for sale in this part of Saint John are located in places that are not very conducive to walking because very few common errands can be run without needing to use a car.
