Rockway real estate guide & listings for sale
A highlight of Rockway is its wide selection of green spaces. Access to public green spaces is very easy in the neighbourhood since there are a few of them close by for residents to explore. This area is relatively quiet, as there are few people out and about on the streets, although there can be higher levels of noise for those who are near Highway 8, Highway 7 or the railway line.
Driving is a great transportation option in this part of the city. Parking is generally easy, and it is a very short car ride to the nearest highway, such as Highway 7, from any home in Rockway. In contrast, public transit users may experience limited options in Rockway due to the infrequent service. Nevertheless, there are a few bus lines crossing the neighbourhood, and most houses are very close to a bus stop. Moving around by bicycle is challenging in this part of the city as the cycling network is not very extensive, and there is a considerable amount of hills. Travelling by foot is also not very popular in Rockway, even though carrying out daily needs is easy.
Most homes in Rockway were built pre-1960, during its largest construction boom. In this area, most dwellings are single detached homes, while the remainder are mainly small apartment buildings. About 60% of the properties in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and 40% are rented. This neighbourhood has a good variety of housing size options, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
It is convenient to reach the closest grocery store by walking in this part of the city. Furthermore, those who like to eat in restaurants will have a good number of opportunities. It is also a reasonably short distance to a good choice of clothing stores. When it comes to education, families will find that no matter where their home is located in this part of Kitchener, both primary and secondary schools are close by. However, it can be difficult to get to daycares on foot.
