Windsor real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Windsor is exemplified by its relaxed environment. Most areas in this city are quiet, as there are usually low levels of noise from traffic - although that is not the case around one of the railway lines, the airport (YQG), E.C. Row Expressway or Highway 401. Finally, there are over 250 parks close by for residents to enjoy, such as Spring Garden Natural Area and Ojibway Prarie Provincial Nature Reserve, making them easy to access.
The favoured method of transportation in this city is very often a car. It is very convenient to find a place to park, and many properties for sale are a reasonably short car ride from the closest highway, such as Dougall Parkway. In contrast, the public transit service in Windsor is not very frequent. Nevertheless, the city is served by about 10 bus lines, and the nearest bus stop is typically very close. It is occasionally challenging for pedestrians to navigate Windsor as few daily errands can be run on foot.
