Homeowners never have to leave this end of town for all necessary amenities, entertainment and restaurants. With this being said, the downtown core is only a fifteen-minute drive from Hyde Park. This location is attractive to buyers as they can live away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, but can quickly and easily access it from their home. Homeowners without cars are covered as the neighbourhood has three LTC bus routes connecting to the rest of the city. The area has seen a lot of improvement with certain roadworks underway to widen main roads and improve traffic flow.
