Downtown Grimsby is fairly good for those who prefer a quiet atmosphere, as the streets tend to be reasonably tranquil - however some areas can be quite loud, especially close to the railway line. Parks aren't well-situated, which makes it very difficult to get to them from a lot of locations within the neighbourhood.
