The character of Taunton is exemplified by its slower-paced ambience. It is very easy to access public green spaces from the majority of locations within the neighbourhood, since there are about 10 of them nearby for residents to unwind in and a large number of properties have a park a short walk away. This area is also very good for those who like a quiet atmosphere, as noise from the streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue.
