Walkability

Unexpected encounters in Beacon Park, Victoria

Unexpected encounters in Beacon Park, Victoria

My favourite thing about Victoria is that it is walkable.  I can easily walk downtown in 30 minutes, where I can shop both for necessities (fresh produce in vibrant Chinatown) and for frivolities (rubber chickens anyone?  Fort Street's got 'em!)  Not to mention all the great local food like Tacofino, Empire Donuts, and Kid Sister artisan ice-cream.  And after I've gathered all my supplies, I can stroll home via Beacon Hill Park where I might see great blue herons roosting, peacocks politely using crosswalks (it IS Victoria, after all), or some goats just... grinning.  Love it!

Feeling at home in downtown Brampton

Feeling at home in downtown Brampton

I feel like I belong in downtown Brampton because its where I feel most at home. Downtown Brampton is filled with many pedestrians walking on trails and loads of nature. It is home to a diverse community with restaurants in every corner. The city is also home to multi-million dollar companies and work space. I love downtown!
