Is London Ontario a great place to live?
Transportation is one of London’s great assets, as residents enjoy easy access to the 400-series highways, public transit, and an international airport. The London Transit system connects the city between 35 bus routes. The London International Airport is located about 20 minutes East of the core. It provides daily connections to Ottawa, Toronto, and Montreal as well as several seasonal international destinations.
Public schools in London and several other cities in Middlesex County are serviced by the Thames Valley District School Board and the London District Catholic School Board. Outside of those boards, London has schools in the Conseil scolaire Viamonde, Conseil scolaire catholique Providence, and several private academies. London Ontario also has two major post-secondary institutions, Fanshawe College and Western University as well as its affiliates: Brescia College, Huron College, and King’s College.
London definitely lives up to its “Forest City” nickname. One of London’s best features is the abundance of trees and natural spaces. Running along the Thames, from Springbank Park in Byron to several parks downtown, is a walkable trail through public green spaces. Other educational sites can be found at the Sifton Bog and Westminster Ponds/Pond Mills Conservation Area, both of which are designated Environmentally Significant Areas
Shopping in London is convenient, too! Most neighbourhoods have a shopping mall, strip, or plaza within a 5 minute drive, making errands easy. London boasts three large malls, Masonville, Westmount, and White Oaks. For local produce and weekly farmers markets, pay a visit to Covent Garden Market in the heart of downtown London.
It’s equally convenient to spend a day out and about on the town with all of the different attractions. Destinations for family fun include Storybook Gardens in Springbank Park, the Ski and Adventure Park Boler Mountain, and the London Children’s Museum.
