Clanton Park real estate guide & listings for sale
Clanton Park offers a broad selection of green spaces to enjoy, as well as some areas with a vibrant ambience. To be more precise, there are approximately 10 parks close by for residents to unwind in, like Wilson Heights Green, which makes it very easy to reach them from many locations in the neighbourhood. Due to the presence of relatively few pedestrians, this area remains relatively quiet, although there can be higher levels of noise for those who are closer to Highway 401 or Allen Expressway.
Clanton Park affords home buyers the choice between different methods of transportation. With Wilson Station on the Yonge - University Line, and about 20 nearby bus lines, this area is very transit friendly. Clanton Park is also well-suited for walking; many daily needs can be met on foot. It is sometimes difficult to move around by bicycle in this part of Toronto since the cycling network is not very comprehensive. Nonetheless, there are a limited number of hills for cyclists to brave.
Over half of the housing stock of Clanton Park is made up of large apartment buildings and single detached homes, whereas the rest are mainly small apartment buildings.
