One of London’s most vibrant neighbourhoods – it stands out as a true gem.
This neighbourhood is filled with tree-lined streets, charming heritage homes where front porches rule, and the place is abuzz all year long with festivals, arts and entertainment events and best of all – friendly neighbours who care intensely about their community.
In the fall, be prepared to get “spooked”. There is a Halloween Bicycle Ride with prizes for best costumes, scarecrows are popping up everywhere (thanks to a community organized contest), and you just might get “Ghosted” – a neighbourhood sanctioned prank that is a cross between Secret Santa and Nicky Nicky Nine Doors.
And that’s not all. This neighbourhood is LOADED with gems...
- Western Fair Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market
- Boyle Activity Council events and programming at the Boyle Memorial Community Centre
- Aeolian Hall
- Palace Theatre
- The Old East Village Grocer
- Lots of local shops and services including artisan bakeries, restaurants, banks and more!
Best of all, these gems are within walking distance of the core, making Old East Village one of London’s most walkable neighbourhoods. And did you know that “walkability” has increasingly become a significant attribute in increasing a neighbourhood’s home overall appeal and quality of life?
With the revitalization of this wonderful neighbourhood already underway, along with exciting future plans for this distinctive heritage area, it's no wonder the popularity of Old East Village continues to grow – making it a gem of a neighbourhood in which to live, work, shop and play.
