A drive along Johnson Street showcases and summarizes what this area has to offer: larger established homes with waterfront views, smaller and more modern low-rise and high-rise apartments, and suburbs built in a variety of decades. Some streets are straight while others curve; winding through the area as they pass parks, playgrounds, and small to mid-sized detached homes. Along these streets are neighbourhood parks with playing fields for soccer and diamonds for baseball. It’s a vibrant area for jobs from the college, hospital and businesses that serve the larger community.
