Delta/Gage Park Neighbourhood
WHO LIVES IN DELTA/GAGE PARK NEIGHBOURHOOD
Delta/Gage Park is (statistically) mainly comprised of single family homes, owned by married couples with older children. Recent trends indicate that many younger families with children are moving to the area. We are also seeing many homes being renovated, built on, or converted in to duplexes. Singles make up a significant 24% of the population. White collar residents represent the majority, with primary employment in business, finance, and administration occupations, along with sales and service sectors.
GREAT STUFF YOU’LL LOVE
Delta/Gage Park outer boundaries are Kenilworth Ave. South, Lawrence Rd, Gage Ave., and Main Street. This beautiful pocket of older homes is nestled closely to the Escarpment and enjoys spectacular views of seasonal foliage.
Gage Park, located on the western edge of the community, is a neighbourhood anchor that attracts visitors every day. Dog walkers, parents & children, cyclists, seniors, and anyone looking for a peaceful breath of fresh air can be found there. In addition to the day-to-day quiet foot traffic, there are weekly concerts and festivals all summer long. The park features fountains, play grounds, lawn bowling, tennis clubs and community gardens. In 2019, a new greenhouse was constructed in the park that is home to many exotic plants from all over the world. Admission is free for regular visitors, but you must purchase a $190 permit from City Hall if you would like wedding photos at this spot. (For photos inside the Greenhouse, contact City Hall for additional info.)
Delta/Gage Park is also home to many schools (including French Immersion), transportation, and Ottawa St shopping district. Homes in this area are often very well cared for and full of character.
NOT SO GREAT STUFF
There isn’t much to dislike about the Delta Neighbourhood, unless you need a very large home, prefer a new build, or are looking for a condo. Typical homes are 2000 square feet or less, and there are no condos to be had. There are also train tracks running along the base of the Escarpment. Although the train runs very slowly and is relatively quiet, some may not like the sound if located very close.
High school students will need to travel to Bernie Custis School now that Delta Secondary School has closed.
Also, if you are looking to be close to nightlife action, this may not be the place for you.
FAVOURITE SPOTS THE NEIGHBOURS LOVE
Gage Park is definitely the highlight of the area. It’s a great place to visit all year round.
