Brookside real estate guide & listings for sale
Brookside offers a slower-paced environment and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time outdoors. It is very easy to access public green spaces in the neighbourhood since there are a few of them close by for residents to visit. This part of Edmonton is quiet overall, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour.
The car is usually the best transportation option in Brookside. Most homes for sale are a very short drive from the nearest highway, and parking is easy. However, Brookside is not very transit friendly. Thankfully, there are approximately 10 bus lines traversing the neighbourhood, and it is very convenient to get to a nearby bus stop from most homes. Walking is not very practical for house buyers in this area as very few day-to-day errands can be run on foot. In contrast, moving around by bicycle is easy in Brookside as this part of the city features a good cycling infrastructure.
