Finally, parks are very well-spread out and there are a few of them close by for residents to explore, which results in them being easy to get to from the majority of locations within the neighbourhood.
Driving is a very good means of transportation in Northview. It is convenient to access a place to park. However, travelling by transit can be difficult in this part of the city due to the low service level. Thankfully, there are a few bus lines crossing the neighbourhood, and the nearest bus stop is typically very close. It is at times challenging for pedestrians to navigate Northview as few day-to-day needs can be carried out without the use of a vehicle. The bicycle is a sometimes poor method of transportation in Northview since the cycling infrastructure is not particularly comprehensive, and cyclists are faced with a significant amount of hills.

With respect to education, in this part of the city, parents and their schoolchildren will generally be able to reach both primary and secondary schools on foot.
