It is easy to access green spaces, since there are over 300 of them nearby for residents to visit and getting to the closest park from a lot of homes for sale is easy. This city is also quiet, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic - however some areas can be quite loud, especially around one of the railway lines or the airport (YQR).
