Looks like: Parklands - because of many ample lawns and large green spaces located on tri-
school area properties. A community that blends architecturally significant public school buildings with a wide range of traditional homes.
Feels like: A comfortable and friendly neighborhood where sidewalks are well used by school kids, dog walkers and the stroller set. Bikers enjoy long stretches of shady roadways.
Walk to: Three schools: Onaway and Woodbury Elementary schools and the High School or the stadium for a football game on a crisp, autumn day or jog along the high school track in the early morning.
Close to: The Nature Center, the RTA Blue Line, the Shaker Town Center area shops, Shaker Main
Library, the Shaker colonnade and Stephanie Tubbs Jones Community Building.
