Parklands Square – How is it to live in the quiet residential area of River West Park

There’s something thrilling about living on the edge; flanked by the country on one side, and the hustle and bustle of the city on the other. Perfectly balanced in between the two is Parklands Square, an apartment for those who want to live a charmed, suburban life. Wildlife emerges from the nearby forests and wetlands, while down the street a bus has dropped off weary travelers from downtown. This is your place.

The name of this beautiful complex is no coincidence; the area is surrounded by beautiful trees and plenty of parks. From here, you can take a leisurely walk through Beaverdam Creek Park through Beauchemin Park to take a stroll down the Assiniboine River. Nearby trails take you through prairies, forest, and riverland; the bold might even try the Headingley Grand Trunk Trail, leading down an abandoned CN railway to Beaudry Park, outside the city limits. The peace and tranquility of the suburbs with the rugged beauty of Manitoba’s outdoors are all at your fingertips. The place is a golfer’s paradise, too, with St. Charles and Glendale Country Clubs only a short drive away.

There are creature comforts, of course. You’ll find grocers within walking distance of your home, as well as pharmacies and convenience stores. The area is well serviced by express bus routes, so if you don’t feel like driving it’s easy to get downtown. There are doctors and dentists within walking distance, so medical appointments are a breeze to get to. Pizza, chinese food and sushi are all right outside your door, for when you want to spend a night out with family while staying close to home. There’s a bar and a liquor mart within a few blocks, perfect when you want to relax and unwind after a hard day of work or play. There’s also a gas station, a bank and a post office a quick jaunt away; all the modern staples of convenience are at your fingertips in this idyllic, semi-rural environment. You’ll feel like you’ve left the hustle and bustle behind, but kept all of the convenience.

The neighborhood is perfect for kids, too. Nearby schools will keep them in the neighborhood, and community centres will give them a chance to play sports, find their artistic side and hang out with new friends. The Charleswood Library is a perfect spot for readers young and old to find a new favorite book, and nearby daycares will look after the little ones on your busier days. When the summer heat has got you down, take your family to the Westdale Pool and enjoy the cool water.

When the day is done, you’ll come home to your tranquil retreat in Parklands Square. Enjoy the sunset from your private balcony while your laundry and dishes wash in-suite. Spacious and convenient with a gorgeous view, this urban retreat is a place you’ll be more than glad to call your home.
