Talbot Village is a recently developed neighbourhood in southwest London. It is composed of a mix of single detached homes, townhouses, and high-rise apartment buildings. There is a commercial plaza at the northwest end of the neighbourhood within walking distance for most residents. It has a grocery store, pharmacy, gym and a mix of restaurants and smaller shops and services.
There are two small neighbourhood parks in Talbot Village, Raleigh Parkette and Talbot Park. Raleigh Parkette has a play structure and paved path, Talbot Park has a play structure, as well as a soccer field and large open green space. In addition to the parks, there is also the Talbot Village Wetland in the centre of the neighbourhood that has natural forest cover and walking trails.
Talbot Village is home École élémentaire La Pommeraie, a French first-language public elementary school. Students may also attend Lambeth and Jean Vanier elementary schools, and St. Thomas Aquinas and Saunders secondary schools.
In September 2018 the new Southwest Community Centre, YMCA + LIbrary will open on the corner of Southdale and Bostwick, providing area residents with multi-purpose community space, an indoor pool and gymnasium, double pad arena, YMCA fitness facility and Library branch. The Westmount Branch Library will move from its current building to the Southwest Community Centre when it opens.
