"The nicer of the Salisburys (there's 8 of them!)"

The council must have been so lazy in naming these suburbs. Just to maximise confusion; there are the following:

Salisbury Downs
Salisbury East
Salisbury Park
Salisbury Heights
Salisbury Plain
Salisbury South
Salisbury North

I guess because the area is generally quite flat (maybe except for 'Heights'!), and the terrain also similar, these suburbs didn't qualify for their own little names?

Anyway, in my opinion Salisbury Heights and Salisbury Park are probably the "poshest" of the Salisburys. The other ones are much of a muchness, really - not a lot that distinguishes them.

So why is Salisbury Park one of the nicer ones? Drive around all of the Salisburys and make up your own mind. But to me, Salisbury Park is noticeably greener (more parks, more tree-lined streets), and people's houses seem better maintained and looked after. Some gardens are actually manicured quite beautifully. The streets seem to have a better sense of community, too. Also, less skid marks / doughnut marks on the streets (another sign, in my opinion!).

I suppose this is why house prices and rents are a bit higher in Salisbury Park than say Salisbury North or Plain. Also, Salisbury Park is right next to Salisbury Heights which might be why.

realityb This review is completely false. If you are not sure drive around this suburb because it is one of Salisbury worst.
