Rural real estate guide & listings for sale
Rural is fairly good for those who need quiet surroundings, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - however some areas can be quite noisy, especially around the airport (ZBA), the railway line or Highway 407. Parks are distributed sporadically, which makes it rather challenging to reach them. Despite that, there are a few green spaces nearby for residents to enjoy.
Getting around by car is very easy in Rural. It is especially convenient to come across a parking spot. It is very inconvenient for pedestrians to navigate this part of the city as running day-to-day errands is very difficult. This area is also not very bike-friendly since riding is made strenuous by the typically hilly terrain, and this neighbourhood is home to a quite bad cycling infrastructure.
