Neighbourhoods of London: Hyde Park

Life in Hyde Park (2020) — Cory McArthur | Top Realtor in London, ONWelcome to Hyde Park! An up and coming neighbourhood in the northwest end of London. Largely rural until it was annexed by the city in 1993, it has since experienced large residential and commercial developments. All necessary amenities, fantastic restaurants, and incredible entertainment can all be found within Hyde Park. Residents never have to leave this end of town! For even more amenities, residents can drive about ten-minutes east down Fanshawe Park Road to Masonville, or about 15 minutes to get to the downtown core. This once rural community has become a thriving residential and shopping district. Currently, it has a population of 6,220.

The type of residential homes that can be found in Hyde Park are single family detached homes, large apartment buildings, and plenty of townhouses. With such diverse housing options, there is something to fit almost everyone’s needs from young-professionals to large families.

There are relatively large parks found in different areas of this neighbourhood. Residents can head to Canterbury Park, which has play structures, swing sets, and a soccer field. Coronation North Park and Maple Grove Park both have playgrounds and swing sets. All three parks have green space that is great for kicking around a ball, playing catch, or even having a family picnic.

Home to many great parks and areas for recreation, you can find Maple Grove, Coronation North, and Cantebury Park within the borders of Hyde Park – each offering play structures and swingsets. You can also find the prestigious London Hunt and Country Club, established in 1885, where you’ll find fox hunting, golf, tennis, skeet and trapshooting.
