"Cute little town but so close to the city"

My family moved in since I was born, Gladesville has always been a cute little town full of good restaurants and cafes, lovely community and banks, shops and Coles. The bus systems are extremely practical and take you everywhere from Top Ryde Shopping Centre to the Sydney city CBD. The environment is very safe, and quiet. There is a lot of grassland and water. The only downside is the price-it is getting fairly expensive to live here. Gladesville is generally a very good neighborhood that is both convenient and quiet.
Pros
  • Close to city and great parts of Sydney
  • Fantastic cafes and restaurants
  • Great culture and friendly people
Cons
  • it's becoming more expensive every year to buy a house because people want to live here

TonyDwyer1 That's just about the dumbest comment I've ever heard. What does it even mean? If it's busy it just means it's vibrant and well utilised. Dirty? I drive through it every day and I've never seen anything that made me think it was dirty.

"The place to be"

Gladesville has it all! Plenty of Gyms to choose from, the swimming centre is enormous and has another private pool with gym next door, Gladesville has many great parks for dogs and families, it has great bushwaks in the national park and simple picnic parks on the water with fantastic sunsets. There are great cafes' and restaurants where it's actually nice food and coffee. It's an ideal suburb for families and/or singles, close to the city and any other interesting part of Sydney, great public transport (no station, but buses run until very late and there are plenty), and the streets are super safe! Gladesville has a good balance of cultures, without overpowering that good old australian spirit :)

"Nice suburb that is close to the city"

Gladesville is a nice suburb that is located about ten kilometres north Sydney. There are no trains around this area and residents have to mainly rely on buses to get into the city. The buses run along Victoria Road and during peak hours, this road gets very congested. It will be a good idea to give yourself extra travel time during peak hours. Another alternative, albeit more expensive option, will be to travel via the ferry to the city.

There are many nice houses, townhouses and apartments around this area. The streets are not unusually narrow and provides easy access into and out of Gladesville. There are many shops, cafes and restaurants along Victoria Road. This makes it quite a convenient suburb to live in. I would recommend this suburb to those who do not mind getting to the city by bus.
