Neighbourhoods of London: Byron

Byron Homes For Sale | Full MLS® | Updated 3 Minutes AgoWelcome to Byron! Characterised by its small town feel and strong sense of community, this neighbourhood is situated on London’s outskirts. Though it is now one of the most popular locations to live in the city, Byron once stood on its own as a village until the 1960’s. With Byron’s abundance of green spaces, communal vibe, and close proximity to the downtown core, it’s no wonder Byron is such a popular place to live! It currently has a population of 16,419.

The commercial heart of the neighbourhood is at Commissioners and Boler. You may find Byron residents sitting out on one of the many sidewalk patios that line Commissioners, enjoying a hot coffee or a delicious meal at one of the many restaurants, including Waldo’s in Byron, Forrat’s Lounge, Byron Freehouse, and Meesai’s Thai Kitchen. Byron has built up a number of shopping, dining, and entertainment options over the years. 

The majority of residential homes in Byron are detached, single family homes. You’ll find smaller homes from the 1950s, as well as large and extravagant homes that have been newly constructed. Though not overly common, you can find condos available along Commissioners Road West. Due to the incredibly varied subdivision, you’ll find a substantial range in pricing. There is something to suit anyone’s needs in this incredible neighbourhood!

Home to Springbank Park, one of the city’s largest and most beloved parks, Byron offers tons of scenic paths along the river, picnic areas, playgrounds, and Storybook Gardens. Not enough to fill your park needs? Head over to Jorgenson Park situated in the middle of the residential area, where you can find the Byron Optimist Community Centre, a wading pool, swimming pool, tennis courts, soccer field, baseball diamond, and play structures. The Byron branch of the London Public Library can be found along Commissioners Road. Byron is also home to Boler Mountain, making it the perfect choice for those who love outdoor adventure for all seasons!
