Parks aren't well-spread out, which results in them being rather difficult to get to from the majority of locations within this part of the municipality. Still, there are approximately 10 green spaces close by for residents to discover.
Driving is a great mode of transportation in Lawrencetown. Parking is quite easy. Travelling on foot is not very practical for property owners in Lawrencetown because meeting daily needs is very inconvenient by walking.
The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of Lawrencetown is an important part of its character. Around 30% of homes in this area were built between 1960 and 1980, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1980s and the 1990s. This part of Halifax is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Roughly 95% of the units in the community are occupied by homeowners while renters occupy the remainder.
High schools and primary schools are not especially abundant in Lawrencetown, and thus tend to be an extended walk away. In addition, daycares are not numerous and therefore not always within walking distance. Concerning eating, some house buyers in this part of Halifax may be able to access the nearest supermarket on foot, while others will need a vehicle.
