The character of Victoria Square is exemplified by its relaxed environment. This part of the city is reasonably quiet overall, as the streets tend to be quite tranquil - however noise can be an issue closer to Highway 404. Finally, public green spaces are easy to access, since there are a few of them close by for residents to explore and reaching the closest park is sometimes challenging from most houses for sale.
The favoured method to get around in Victoria Square is usually driving. It is especially convenient to park, and it is a rather short car ride to the nearest highway, such as Highway 404, from any home in Victoria Square. However, this part of Markham is not very transit friendly. Thankfully, homeowners benefit from a few bus lines, and most properties are near a bus stop. The bicycle is a rather poor method of transportation in this part of Markham because the terrain is not particularly flat, and the cycling infrastructure is rather limited. It is also very inconvenient for pedestrians to navigate Victoria Square since almost no daily needs can be met on foot.
