Finally, there are about 30 public green spaces close by for residents to check out, such as Larande Park and Siemens Park, and they are very well-spread out, which results in them being easy to access from the majority of locations within Bram West.
This part of the city is very car friendly. Many real estate listings are a rather short drive from the nearest highway, such as Highway 401, and it is especially convenient to find a parking spot.

Thankfully, residents benefit from around 10 bus lines, and bus stops are not very far-removed from most properties.

Bram West is also not very convenient for those who travel by foot because most daily needs are impractical to carry out by walking.
