The Old North Neighbourhood
Although most residents of the city think of Old North as including most of the Downtown neighbourhoods, for the purposes of this guide we will define Old North as the area bound by Oxford to the south, Adelaide to the East and the Thames River to the west and north. Whereas Old South, because of the unique character of Wortley Village, has more of an “artsy” character; Old North tends to be somewhat more “patrician” due to its proximity to both Downtown and the University of Western Ontario.
It is home to King’s College, an affiliate of UWO, as well as St. Peter’s Seminary and the back entrance to Western along Richmond Street. One of the city’s most prestigious neighbourhoods, Broughdale, which encompasses the area near The Parkway actually exits out into the campus on its north side. In addition St. Joseph’s Hospital, a part of the London Health Sciences Centre, is located within the area.
There are a number of parks, the most prominent of which is Gibbons Park. Others include: Doige Park, Broughdale Park, Ross Park, Huron Conservation Park and the North London Sports Field.
