Townsite real estate guide & listings for sale

Home buyers who prefer a slower-paced atmosphere will enjoy Townsite. Green spaces, such as Bowen Park, are very well-situated and there are a few of them close by for residents to unwind in, making it easy to access them from most locations in the neighbourhood. This part of Nanaimo is also fairly good for those who need quiet surroundings, as the streets are generally reasonably calm - however noise can be an issue around the railway line.

Transportation

The preferred means of transportation in Townsite is often a car. It is convenient to find a parking spot. However, the public transit system in Townsite is rather limited. Thankfully, there are a few bus lines passing through the neighbourhood, and the closest bus stop is typically very close. Townsite is not especially conducive to walking because running common errands is sometimes difficult.

There are equal parts renters and owners living in this neighbourhood. This neighbourhood also has a good choice of housing size options - it is quite easy to find properties ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
