West Hill offers a calm environment and will appeal to those who enjoy spending time outdoors. This part of Toronto features a fair amount of greenery; parks, including Colonel Danforth Park and Highland Creek, are very well-located and there are about 30 of them nearby for residents to discover, making it very easy to get to them. Residents will also find that the tree canopy coverage for most streets is reasonably good. This area is quiet overall, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic - although that is not the case closer to the railway line.
This neighbourhood is quite transit friendly owing to Guildwood Station on the Lakeshore East Line, and a few nearby bus lines. In contrast, this area is not especially bicycling-friendly as cyclists encounter a significant amount of elevation changes, and the cycling infrastructure is sometimes poor.
