Located in the heart of London, Oxford Park is a smaller, cottage-like neighbourhood north of the Thames River within walking distance of downtown. Bounded by the Petersville ravine, Riverside Drive, Mount Pleasant Cemetery, and Oxford Street West, this quiet residential enclave filled with large mature trees is one of the city’s best-kept secrets.
Oxford Park comprises smaller post-war houses and single detached homes with embarrassingly large lots, casual standards in yard maintenance, and friendly neighbours. It is a 20 minute walk to the west side of downtown - Budweiser Gardens, the Covent Garden Market, and Museum London. Chartwell Riverside, a retirement residence, anchors the southeast corner and Eagle Heights Public School is situated in the northwest.
The busiest little mall in London, Cherryhill Village Mall, serves as its major commercial centre with a grocery store, London Public Library branch, local shops, and services. Multiple professional businesses are conveniently found north of the neighbourhood across from the mall.
As a dog- and kid-friendly community, Oxford Park residents use the local green space at the school, the cemetery, and Family Service Thames Valley. The closest City park is West Lions Park, a short 10 minute walk east of the neighbourhood and accessible by ravine steps at the end of Edinburgh Street. This large park has a lighted soccer field, baseball diamond, basketball court, spray pad, play structure, swing set, skateboard park, and is home to the Kinsmen Arena and Community Centre. Empress Park is a tiny park with a play structure, swings, and paved walking paths, also located in the ravine, and accessible by steps at the end of Cambridge Avenue. The paved Thames Valley Parkway (TVP) is within easy walking and biking distance of Oxford Park as well.
