Winnipeg

Winnipeg is a city located within Manitoba, Canada.

Housing

Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing most dwellings in Winnipeg, whereas the rest are mainly large apartment buildings and small apartment buildings. Roughly one third of properties in this city were built pre-1960, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 1980s. This city is primarily composed of two bedroom and three bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy roughly two thirds of the dwellings in the city and the rest are rented.

Transportation

This city is an extremely good part of the Greater Winnipeg metropolitan area for getting around by car. Many homes for sale are a short drive from the closest highway, such as Perimeter Highway, and it is very convenient to access a parking spot. However, the public transit network in Winnipeg is not very convenient. Thankfully, the city is linked by over 50 bus lines, and bus stops are usually nearby. Winnipeg is not particularly suitable for walking because carrying out daily needs is difficult on foot.

Services

Parents and their kids will find that wherever their home is located in Winnipeg, both primary and secondary schools are close by. Residents benefit from public and private schools at both the elementary and secondary school level. However, parents and their children may consider it difficult to reach daycares as a pedestrian. With respect to eating, it is easy to get to the nearest grocery store on foot in this city. Over 450 supermarkets are situated nearby, and the best selection can be found on streets such as Marion Street. There are also a limited number of options for those who appreciate restaurants and cafes in close proximity.

Character

The character of Winnipeg is exemplified by its relaxed ambience. This city is quiet, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic - although that is not the case near the airport (YWG), Perimeter Highway or one of the railway lines. Finally, a lot of locations within the city have fairly good access to green spaces, like Maple Grove Park and Assiniboine Forest, since there are over 1200 of them close by for residents to discover.
