It is easy for pedestrians to navigate Norgate; carrying out day-to-day needs is convenient by walking, and plenty of businesses are reasonably nearby. However, commuting by bicycle is occasionally challenging in Norgate as the cycling network is sometimes poor, and the area is not particularly flat. The public transit system in this part of the municipality is somewhat poor. Thankfully, the neighbourhood is linked by a few bus lines, and most properties are very close to a bus stop. On the other hand, driving is a very good transportation option in Norgate. Finding a parking spot is easy, and many properties for sale are a reasonably short car ride from the closest highway.
A general and a specialty grocery store is always only a rather short walk away in Norgate. In addition, a restaurant is often just around the corner, and property owners can enjoy a few cafes as well. Home buyers benefit from a good number of clothing stores within walking distance. As far as education is concerned, parents and their kids will find that wherever their house is located in Norgate, primary schools and daycares are nearby. In contrast, this part of the municipality does not contain any high schools.
The character of Norgate is exemplified by its relaxed ambience.
