Westlane real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Westlane is exemplified by its relaxed atmosphere. There are approximately 10 public green spaces close by for residents to discover and they are very well-spread out, which makes them easy to get to. This area is also reasonably quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case near one of the railway lines, Highway 420 or Queen Elizabeth Way.
This neighbourhood is especially car friendly. Finding a parking spot is quite easy, and most homes for sale are a reasonably short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Highway 420. On the other hand, commuting by public transit is very hard in Westlane. Nonetheless, there are about 10 bus lines crossing the neighbourhood, and it is easy to reach a nearby bus stop from most properties. This part of Niagara Falls is not very well-suited for those who travel by foot since very few common errands can be run without the use of a car.
