The Coves
London, Ontario

The Coves is a relatively small neighbourhood in southwest London, Ontario. The name of this district pays homage to the area which it’s bordered by – The Coves Environmentally Significant Area. Here, Londoners can enjoy the outdoors spending time fishing in the ponds, jogging along the trails or having a picnic in the park. A visit to The Coves showcases the diverse set of wildlife that inhabits the area. It is integral to the environmental history of London and the Thames River. Therefore, the city has made sure to preserve its natural state. 

Location is everything for this small neighbourhood. Residents can enjoy the benefits of ‘country living’, while in proximity to everything the city has to offer (a five-minute drive to the city centre). It is the perfect place for those who work in the city but love being outdoors!

 

The Coves is home to two residential areas. Buyers can shop the subdivision to the east of it and inside the curve of the ponds. To the east, development began in the late 1800’s with single detached homes. Apartment buildings and some row housing were developed more recently, during the mid 1900’s. Potential buyers can also shop in Cove Mobile Home Park for a serene, cottage-country feel. Affordability combined with country living and direct access to amenities make this neighbourhood a sought after area to live in the Forest City.

For additional green spaces, residents have access to Springbank Flats Park and Greenway Park. These are rather large parks with accessible amenities such as soccer fields and play areas.
