Malvern real estate guide & listings for sale
Malvern is a fairly good neighbourhood to buy a house in for those who prefer a slower-paced atmosphere. Greenery is not especially prominent in this part of Toronto; more specifically, residents will find that many streets have sub-par tree coverage. Nonetheless, access to green spaces, like Neilson Park and Major Abbas Ali Park, is very easy from most locations in the neighbourhood since there are around 40 of them nearby for residents to visit. This part of the city is also fairly good for those who prefer quiet surroundings, as the streets tend to be quite tranquil - although that is not the case closer to Highway 401 or the railway line.
Malvern is especially car friendly. Coming across a parking spot is generally easy, and it is a rather short drive to the nearest highway, such as Highway 401, from any location in this neighbourhood. This part of the city also has a reasonably good public transit infrastructure. For example, the neighbourhood is connected by around 10 bus lines, and bus stops are not very far from most residences. It is sometimes difficult for people travelling on foot to get around in Malvern as few day-to-day needs can be carried out without the use of a vehicle. Malvern is also not particularly bicycling-friendly because there are few bike lanes, and the area is not especially flat.
