Les Rivières real estate guide & listings for sale

There are over 50 green spaces nearby for residents to enjoy, including Parc Prévert and Parc Chauveau, and they are very well-situated, making it easy to reach them. This borough is also fairly good for those who need a quiet atmosphere, as the streets tend to be quite tranquil - although that is not the case around one of the railway lines, Autoroute Laurentienne or Autoroute Henri-IV.
Driving is usually the favoured approach to get around in Les Rivières. It is a short car ride to the nearest highway, such as Autoroute Robert-Bourassa, from any home in this area, and finding a place to park is quite easy. In contrast, getting around by public transit is difficult in Les Rivières. Nevertheless, the borough is served by over 50 bus lines, and bus stops are not very far-removed from most residences. It is sometimes challenging for pedestrians to move around in Les Rivières as many daily needs are occasionally difficult to carry out on foot. Although bicycling is more feasible in some pockets than others, Les Rivières is also not particularly bicycling-friendly because the cycling network is sometimes poor, and cyclists encounter a considerable amount of slopes.

This borough has a good choice of housing size options, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. The split between renters and homeowners is about even.
