This part of Guelph is also reasonably good for those who prefer quiet areas, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case around the railway line.
Cars are an excellent transportation option in Onward Willow. Parking is generally easy, and the majority of homes for sale are a short drive from the nearest highway.
