Saint John real estate guide & listings for sale
Saint John is quiet overall, as the streets tend to be peaceful - although there are still several louder sections, especially close to the airport (YSJ) or one of the railway lines. Reaching public green spaces, such as Rockwood Park and Seaside Park, is rather difficult from the majority of locations within the city since they are distributed sporadically. Despite that, there are around 30 parks close by for residents to enjoy.
The best transportation option in Saint John is very often a car. Nearby highways are easy to drive to from any home in this city, and it is especially convenient to park. It is difficult for people walking to navigate Saint John because running common errands is impractical on foot.
