Stanley Park real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Stanley Park is exemplified by its calm atmosphere. There are about 10 parks nearby for residents to explore, including Dom Cardillo Trail and Idlewood Park Natural Area, making it very easy to get to them from a large number of locations in this neighbourhood. This part of the city is also reasonably good for those who enjoy a quiet atmosphere, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several louder sections, especially around Highway 7 or Highway 8.
This neighbourhood is very car friendly. The majority of properties for sale are a short drive from the nearest highway, such as Highway 8, and it is very convenient to park. In contrast, the public transit system in Stanley Park is rather poor. Nevertheless, the neighbourhood is connected by a few bus lines, and bus stops are not very far away from most properties. Stanley Park is cycling-friendly as the bicycling infrastructure is well-developed. Stanley Park is not particularly conducive to those who travel by foot because few common errands can be run on foot.
In Stanley Park, about half of buildings are single detached homes, but large apartment buildings, small apartment buildings, and townhouses are also present in the housing stock. A majority of the housing growth in this part of Kitchener happened between 1960 and 1980. This part of the city offers mainly two bedroom and three bedroom homes. Around 60% of the population of this neighbourhood own their home and 40% are renters.
The nearest supermarket in Stanley Park is generally only a rather short walk away. In addition, those who like to eat in restaurants will have a fair number of choices, and residents benefit from a few cafes as well. When it comes to education, both primary and secondary schools are easy to get to on foot from any location in Stanley Park. On the other hand, daycares are not particularly numerous and consequently not always within walking distance.
