Southdale real estate guide & listings for sale
People who prefer a relaxed ambience will enjoy Southdale. Public green spaces, including Lakeside Park and Lakeside Park Natural Area, are especially well-spread out and there are approximately 10 of them close by for residents to unwind in, which makes them very easy to reach. This part of the city is quiet overall, as the streets are reasonably calm - however noise can be an issue near Highway 7 or the railway line.
Southdale is quite cycling-friendly because there are a fair number of bike lanes. Active home buyers will also enjoy the walk-friendly character of this area; meeting daily needs is easy. The preferred method to move around in Southdale is very often driving. It is easy to find a place to park, and many real estate listings are a short car ride from the closest highway, such as Highway 7. On the other hand, Southdale is not very transit friendly. Thankfully, there are a few bus lines passing through the neighbourhood, and it is especially convenient to find a nearby bus stop from most residences.
