South Arm is very desirable and a neighbourhood of choice for many homebuyers looking for a great residential area. Situated on acres of green space and walkways, South Arm Community Centre and adjoining South Arm Park offer a full slate of activities for all ages, outdoor tennis courts and basketball courts, an outdoor seasonal pool with a water slide and soccer and football fields, as well as many paved paths for relaxed and leisurely walking. Broadmoor Mall and Richlea Square on No 3 Rd offer a great variety of shopping and amenities to all South Arm residents.
South Arm Real Estate offers a variety of housing, from condos to single family homes. Mayfair Court and Bristol Court and even some rather rare leasehold buildings are examples of the vast range of choice in real estate in this area. Strata condos and townhouses range from older buildings like Stornoway and Country Club Estates, to newer developments such as South Arm Gardens. Detached homes vary as well; many are built on wide, deep lots and range from the original structure erected in the early 1970’s to recently built homes with a great deal more square footage. Whiteside or Bridge are the elementary schools while dual/track McRoberts is the district Secondary school, with both a high school French Immersion and English components.
