North London Neighbourhood

Welcome to the Neighbourhood

The North London Neighbourhood Pet Clinic is located in North London, right on the edge of the downtown core. “Old North”, as most Londoners refer to this area, is bordered by the Thames River in the North and West, Adelaide Street in the East, and Oxford Street in the South. This area is home to King’s University College, St. Joseph’s Hospital, Gibbons Park, and part of the Thames Valley Parkway that runs along the river. Attractions close-by include Western University, the Masonville area, and downtown London. The character of Old North with its older homes and tree-lined streets, as well as its convenient location bordering the university and central London, makes this one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in the city. We are so lucky to be a part of it!
