"Busy street in a lovely area"

I walk every day along Forrest Road. It is a main road to those who live in this general area as it comes off Marmion Ave so it sometimes gets a little bit noisy but if you have lived in places like Scarborough before, then its still very quiet compared to living there!
Forrest road is in a lovely location, near three large parks and local shops and restaurants. There is even a medical centre nerby which is very handy and the Thai Restaurant up the road is the best I've ever had (walking distance from your home).
The locals living here I find to be very laid back and friendly and it is a safe place for families. Children happily play in the parks unsupervised as its a very safe area.
Nice and close to the beach, Whitfords shops, the ramps to the freeway and train station and if you need to get a bus, there are always plenty of them coming past.
It's not a party area if thats what you are after so be prepared to kick back and relax in this wonderfully, quiet and friendly part of Padbury.
