Kipps Lane is a neighbourhood in the northeast end of London. There is a diverse mix of housing styles, with many single detached homes built in the 1950s, some newer detached homes built towards the end of the 20th century, townhomes and row housing and apartment buildings. The major commercial areas for Kipps Lane residents are on Huron at Highbury and Huron at Adelaide. There is also a smaller local commercial plaza along Kipps Lane at Arbour Glen Cresent.
Ed Blake Park is a great park in the centre of the neighbourhood, with play structures, swing sets, soccer fields, a community garden, spray pad, and lots of open green space. The Kipps Lane neighbourhood is located just south of the Thames River, and there are many connections to the Thames Valley Parkway’s beautiful trails along the river. There are four schools in the neighbourhood: Northbrae and Hillcrest elementary schools, Louise Arbour French Immersion elementary school, and Monseigneur-Bruyère French first language Catholic secondary. The Beacock Library and Carling-Thames Family Centre are also located in the neighbourhood where many no-cost or low-cost programs are available to residents of all ages.
Kipps Lane is within the boundaries of Northeast London Community Engagement (NELCE). NELCE is a resident-based, action-oriented volunteer group celebrating and strengthening the community of Northeast London. Check out their website, their Facebook page or send them an email.
