Commuting can be such a drag. It adds extra time to the workday, treacherous driving conditions can leave you feeling frazzled and tired, and unless you’re taking to the road like a NASCAR racer (which we certainly hope is not the case) it isn’t incredibly exhilarating.
That’s why so many of our new homebuyers are thrilled about Glenmore and Highland Park’s excellent location. A short 10-minute stroll to Grandview Corners will bring you to the coffee shop, the kitchen store, the salon and more. But it’s Glenmore and Highland Park’s proximity to Richmond, YVR, South Surrey Park & Ride and the US border that has people leaving our sales centre with wide eyes and big smiles. We think you’ll be pleased as well.
South Surrey Park & Ride
A six-minute drive from Glenmore and Highland Park, South Surrey Park & Ride is located at King George and Hwy 99. The Park & Ride has 425 parking spaces available seven days a week. You will want to look for Bays 3 and 4, with busses heading to Bridgeport Station and the Expo Line SkyTrain.
King George SkyTrain Station
From the Park & Ride, make your way to the King George SkyTrain Station. Once you’re here, a trip downtown will take you less than an hour. Hop on the Expo Line for an exciting day trip to Science World, or venture into the heart of Gastown. King George to Waterfront takes 40 minutes, with trains running every six to eight minutes on weekends.
Richmond and YVR
A half-hour drive heading north on Highway 99 will bring you to Richmond’s city centre. Many of our homeowners’ business offices are in the heart of Richmond, so hearing about this 30-minute commute was thoroughly good news. Ten minutes further, and you’ll find yourself at Vancouver International Airport. Getting to the airport couldn’t be easier, finding the time to get away might be a bit more challenging.
Heading south over the border might just become a regular weekend occurrence. Escape for a day trip down Chuckanut Drive, shop till you drop at Tulalip’s Premium Outlets or check out the fish market at Pike Place in downtown Seattle. The Peace Arch border crossing is a mere 12 minutes away, depending on the border lineup, of course.
It’s easy to get around here.
