This week’s sunny days encouraged me to get out for a few evening strolls. To avoid the hustle and bustle on the walking trails, I decided to take a nose around one of the cities up and coming neighbourhoods. Now that the fog has cleared, the sun is shining its light on many places often forgotten. One of these places for me is the neighbourhood around Mundy Pond.
Mundy Pond Neighbourhood: Urban Planning at its Accidental Best
Mundy Pond is surrounded by on of Grand Concourse walking trails. The Mundy Pond Trail is complete with picnic tables, a boat launch, seating areas, and even a miniature stone castle. The neighbourhood has a lot to offer. Its mix of residential and commercial properties makes the area quite walkable. Imagine living in a place where you can walk to the doctor, the supermarket, or even for some indoor recreation? For many of us these necessities are an outer ring road trip away.
The fenced in Dog Park is a great place to socialize your canine, and possibly meet some fellow dog lovers while doing so.
There’s even an outdoor gym if you’re looking to lose some of that “winter weight”. Both major grocery stores are nearby, as well as a softball field, playground, skateboarding park, and the Muse Recreation Centre. Work is underway to build a new elementary school. This neighbourhood has something for everyone!
The Future of Mundy Pond Real Estate
Today the Mundy Pond neighbourhood is a real up and coming area. People have already started to recognize the benefits of living centre city with everyday conveniences at hand. If you drive around the neighbourhood you will notice beautiful new homes mixed in with the modest bungalows that once dominated the area.
Developments such as the Fortis building could significantly increase the price of homes in this area. Mundy Pond Road and surrounding streets are filled with low cost housing on quite sizable lots which are perfect for those looking for a renovation project, or even to tear down and build a dream home.
Get Your Piece of Mundy Pond I encourage all of you to get out and explore all that Mundy Pond neighbourhood has to offer. Take a look at some of the great pictures I managed on snap on my travels.
