Carp real estate guide & listings for sale
The noise levels in Carp are low, as the streets tend to be calm - although that is not the case close to Highway 417, Highway 7, the railway line or the airport (YRP). Accessing green spaces from most locations in the neighbourhood, including South March Highlands Conservation Forest and Hidden Lake Park, is very difficult since they are sparse. Despite that, there are a few parks close by for residents to discover.
Driving is an excellent mode of transportation in Carp. Parking is generally easy. This neighbourhood is not very amenable to bicycling because there are very few bike lanes, and there are a good number of slopes for cyclists to brave. Carp is also not very suitable for those who travel by foot as running common errands is very challenging by walking.
Most homes in Carp were built following the year 2000, during its most significant construction boom.
