This part of the city is quiet, as there are usually low levels of noise from traffic - although that is not the case near the railway line.

Active property owners will value the quite pedestrian-friendly nature of Royal Orchard; running common errands is easy. On the other hand, biking is difficult in this neighbourhood since cyclists encounter a significant amount of elevation changes, and the cycling network is fairly poor.

Finding a place to park is easy, and it is a rather short car ride to the nearest highway from any home in Royal Orchard. In contrast, commuting by transit can be occasionally challenging in Royal Orchard due to the service's low frequency. Nonetheless, homeowners have access to about 10 bus lines, and most houses are very close to a bus stop.
