London & Area Neighbourhoods
Ilderton, Ontario. Just a few minutes North of London and half-way between Lake Erie and Lake Huron. A rural community of just a few hundred people in the 80s, now home to over 2000 due to the demand for affordable living space close to the city yet far enough away to still maintain it's village feel. Continued, managed growth makes Ilderton a hot-spot for new home owners and the town has become a very desirable place to live. Most houses and homes are just a few steps away from rolling countryside providing enjoyable walks and cycle rides. The ball diamond and play fields are popular venues along with the skateboard park and splash pad provided by The Optimists.
Just walk down the main street and feel the warmth, everyone says hello, store keepers are friendly and inviting and the air is clean and fresh (but sometimes a little "rural"!). The community is active, with The Lions Club, Optimists, Church groups and many other organisations helping to make Ilderton a great place to live and work. There is one major employer in town and many smaller businesses, some run from home and some from storefronts. There is a well equipped gym with 24 hour access and some of the best rates around, a tea room, 2 hairdressers, pharmacy, 2 gas bars plus a garage, veterinary surgery, medical centre, bank, diner, dentist, variety store, 2 pizza stores, one of the most popular restaurant/pubs for miles around plus many other businesses.
