Welcome to Oxford Park!

There's a reason why so many neighbours have lived here for 30+ years .....

Located in the heart of London, Ontario, Oxford Park is a smaller, cottage-like neighbourhood north of the Thames River within walking distance of downtown. Bounded by the Petersville ravine, Riverside Drive, Mount Pleasant Cemetery, and Oxford Street West, this quiet residential enclave filled with large mature trees is one of the city’s best-kept secrets.


Oxford Park comprises smaller post-war houses and single detached homes with embarrassingly large lots, casual standards in yard maintenance, and friendly neighbours. It is a 20 minute walk to the west side of downtown - Budweiser Gardens, the Covent Garden Market, and Museum London. Chartwell Riverside, a retirement residence, anchors the southeast corner and Eagle Heights Public School is situated in the northwest.


The busiest little mall in London, Cherryhill Village Mall, serves as its major commercial centre with a grocery store, London Public Library branch, local shops, and services. Multiple professional businesses are conveniently found north of the neighbourhood across from the mall.


As a dog- and kid-friendly community, Oxford Park residents use the local green space at the school, the cemetery, and Family Service Thames Valley. The closest City park is West Lions Park, a short 10 minute walk east of the neighbourhood and accessible by ravine steps at the end of Edinburgh Street. This large park has a lighted soccer field, baseball diamond, basketball court, spray pad, play structure, swing set, skateboard park, and is home to the Kinsmen Arena and Community Centre. Empress Park is a tiny park with a play structure, swings, and paved walking paths, also located in the ravine, and accessible by steps at the end of Cambridge Avenue. The paved Thames Valley Parkway (TVP) is within easy walking and biking distance of Oxford Park as well.


Elementary school students can attend Eagle Heights Public School, St. Thomas More Catholic School, Jeanne Sauvé French Immersion School, St. John French Immersion School, or London Islamic School. High school students attend Sir Frederick Banting, St. André Bessette or H.B. Beal secondary schools..

It is finally happening, everyone! Our Oxford Park neighbourhood is scheduled for significant infrastructure changes, starting with Britannia Avenue and Tozer Avenue next summer. Would you like to learn more about these changes? Kyle Chambers, Environmental Services Engineer, from City Hall is giving a presentation on the work completed last year by the river at Cavendish, and explaining how this infrastructure work directly impacts our neighbourhood. He will also discuss the changes we can expect in our neighbourhood (new curbs, new sidewalks, etc.). And yes, Tozer Avenue will be getting one sidewalk and curbs (unconfirmed which side of the street the sidewalk will be constructed until the work actually starts).

6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
