We were known as the Forest City in London, Ontario. We got many parks and green spaces to offer in London: including Springbank Park starting in Byron and leading all the way near Downtown, Storybook Gardens near Byron within Springbank Park, Sifton Bog which is a great walking trail through nature near Oakridge (Oxford & Hyde Park), Gibbons Park, Victoria and Harris Park (last three near or in downtown London).
We have world class educational institutions to offer! We are home to Western University, a leading institution in medical research and engineering. We also have Fanshawe College, which is well known for their hands-on academic programming and apprenticeship pathways to land you a successful career no matter where you're interest lye.
London has MANY great eats! We will expand on that in a future episode. But we also offer Budweiser Gardens, home to the London Knights Hockey Team and the London Lighting Basketball Team. We also offer many concerts and live events, in which will start up when things get better with the global pandemic, but we have Rock The Park every September at Harris Park, indoor events at Budweiser Gardens and London Music Hall, The Sunfest and Ribfest every summer in Victoria Park on Richmond Street and many community events at all age and comfort levels.
