What do you appreciate most having near your home

Of all the amenities you have nearby your house, which one do you appreciate best?

A decent-sized park (for Dutch Standards) called the Oude Warande

I just added park, good one.

I myself go for the supermarket by the way. I suck at looking ahead more then 1 day in advance when it comes to grocery shopping.

the most important is a primary school, adults have cars no problem, children need walking, and maybe even a high school, sometimes our work timetable doesnt permit child to go to schools that are far away

A supermarket. Since I don't have a car, I need to carry my groceries home on foot so it's really convenient if a shop is within walking distance. It doesn't have to be a large supermarket, just a place with a decent selection of groceries and reasonable prices. I currently have 1 supermarket and 2 minimarkets within 500m so I'm quite happy about that.

If I get older, my priorities will probably change but that depends on variables I cannot predict at the moment.

Just a supermarket. I consider it an extension of my pantry.

I appreciate having a fitness centre nearby. Plus, all the supermarkets and the vicinity of all the road infrastructure that's well developed.
