The Sunday drive has been a long cherished tradition in many families. I remember when my grandparents would squeeze us kids into the back seat for a scenic drive out into the country. We had a favourite spot where we always stopped for homemade ice cream. It was the journey, not the destination. It was telling jokes, playing “I spy”, and racing to eat our double-fudge scoop before it melted on a hot summer’s day.
With gas prices, insurance and concern about environmental impact, the Sunday drive may appear to be going extinct – but we think it’s just evolving. Car sharing programs offer residents a quick way to runs errands or get to work without ever needing a car of their own. It was never about the car, it was about being together. West 5 is a community dedicated to getting to the heart of what people want and need. Miles of walking trails and close by shops, parks, and cafes can make a Sunday walk the new family tradition.
I prefer to walk, but whether you run, cycle, or just take it at a leisurely pace, West 5 has a pace and a space to match your lifestyle.
