Southdale real estate guide & listings for sale
Southdale is a reasonably good neighbourhood to buy a home in for those who prefer a calm environment.

Finally, it is very easy to access public green spaces in the neighbourhood since there are about 10 of them nearby for residents to check out.
The bike is a good means of transportation in Southdale because the cycling infrastructure is fairly good. Southdale is also quite suitable for walking; many daily needs can be met on foot. Driving is a great means of transportation in this part of Kitchener. Most real estate listings are a short drive from the closest highway, such as Highway 7, and it is convenient to park. In contrast, travelling by transit can be difficult in Southdale as a result of the infrequent service. Thankfully, house owners benefit from a few bus lines, and it is especially convenient to find a nearby bus stop from most properties.
