  • Inglewood

    Neighbourhood

    2014 Great Places in Canada – Neighbourhood

    Jury Statement

    Inglewood is a great neighbourhood to visit but also, and perhaps most importantly, a great neighbourhood to live. Inglewood has the bedrock elements of an inclusive community with a large affordable housing stock, a range of transportation options, support for local businesses and community facilities. The jury was also impressed by the expression of local culture from night markets to celebrating local artisans in everyday objects. It’s also hard to resist a place that has the odd chicken roaming the streets.
