The Northridge Neighbourhood
Northridge is a very quiet, family friendly area with slightly above average property values, lots of green space, and a noticeable lack of medium and high density developments. It is home to one of the city’s best and the north end’s main high schools: A.B. Lucas.
Kilally Meadows ESA
Kilally Meadows Environmentally Significant Area (ESA) is located in northeast London. The publicly-owned portion of the ESA (146 ha) stretches between Adelaide Street and Highbury Avenue, along the North Thames River and Meander Creek. This ESA is situated within the floodplain of the North Thames River. The site varies from shady river-side woods to open meadows to wet swamps.
There is a variety of trails within this site, totaling 10.3 km (see map on reverse). Most of the trails are flat and easy to walk.
The managed trails are marked with yellow blazes. The Thames Valley Trail (white blazes) also uses the trails on the north side of the river.
In the 19th and 20th centuries the site was farmed and used to graze cattle. In the 1960s, sand and gravel were extracted from several areas that are now regenerating into meadows and woods. The City of London purchased much of the site by the early 1970s, with additional lands purchased since then.
The property was designated as an ESA in 1999 owing to several factors, including its unusual plant communities, rare plants, large size, and groundwater recharge.
Parks and Other Places of Interest
The area is home to a number of parks including Stoneybrook Park, Wakefield Park along the North Thames River, as well as neighbourhood parks: Dalkeith and Northridge.
