Located in New York, United States, the census-designated place of Ontario is situated in the Rochester metropolitan area.
Ontario is quiet overall, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although there are still several noisier areas, especially near the railway line. Parks are distributed sparsely, which makes them very difficult to get to. Despite that, there are a few public green spaces nearby for residents to unwind in, like Earl E Casey Park.
In Ontario, about 80% of buildings are single detached homes, while the remainder are mainly mobile homes. This part of the Rochester metropolitan area also has a selection of unit sizes - it is quite easy to find houses ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. About 85% of the properties in the census-designated place are occupied by home owners while renters occupy the remainder. The median year of construction for dwellings in this census-designated place is 1977.
It is very rarely feasible for home buyers in Ontario to reach the closest supermarket by walking. There are also a few options for those who cherish nearby restaurants. With regards to education, there are only a very small number of high schools and primary schools in this part of the Rochester metropolitan area and accordingly they can be a very long walk away.
The car is usually the preferred approach to move around in Ontario. It is especially convenient to park. On the other hand, this census-designated place is not very well-suited for traveling on foot since meeting daily needs is very challenging by walking.
