Less than 1km from the centre of the city, and certainly within walking and biking distance, lies Washington Valley. As you can tell by its name the suburb lies in a valley, with a broad selection of homes on the flat, and the slopes. One of the closest parks to the city is Pioneer Park and it can be found not far from the beginning of Washington Rd. Quite a few homes here have views or an outlook.
The residential home mix is made up of rental properties and owner occupied homes.
In Washington Valley Rd there is the local 7 day a week dairy. You‘re less than 2-3 minute drive away from the city which has a varied and mixed shopping scene, with new entrants like Fashion Island alongside traditional shops who have been in Nelson for decades.
There‘s no shortage of supermarkets, clothing shops, bookstores, shoe shops, etc in our town. And after walking around for an hour or two, there‘s plenty of places to sit down and have a cuppa.
“The Bus” travels via Washington Rd approx. 5 times a day on weekdays and 4 times a day on Saturdays. There is currently no scheduled Sunday service. So said though, you really are within what can be classified as “walking distance” to town.
