This part of the city is reasonably quiet, as the streets are generally peaceful - although that is not the case near the railway line or Highway 401. Finally, there are approximately 20 public green spaces close by for residents to unwind in, which makes them very easy to get to from most locations within this neighbourhood.

It is very convenient to park, and many real estate listings are a reasonably short drive from the closest highway, such as Highway 401. In contrast, the public transit network in Lakeview is rather poor. Nonetheless, the neighbourhood is connected by a few bus lines, and bus stops are not very far-removed from most houses. Lakeview is not very suitable for those who travel by foot as many daily needs are impractical to meet without the use of a vehicle.
