Welcome to Historic Woodfield
Woodfield is a Victorian neighbourhood located in the heart of London, Ontario. This historic community is bordered by Richmond, Dundas, Adelaide and the CPR tracks to the north. Woodfield's roughly 1400 households fall mostly within two Heritage Districts (East and West Woodfield). Homes in Woodfield date from the 1840s, with most homes built between the late 1800s and early 1900s. Woodfield is one of the largest and finest examples of intact Victorian streetscapes in Canada.
The extensive size of the two combined Heritage Districts in Woodfield encompass everything from enormous Queen Anne style mansions to tiny Ontario Cottages. The level of preservation is impressive to say the least. No 'gentrified' district, this well-preserved community includes homes of all sizes, and residents from all walks of life. Victoria Park is found within the boundaries of Woodfield, alive with festivals in the summer and sparkling with beautiful lights in the winter. Tall trees line her wide historic streets.

Woodfield's motto is 'Residential to the Core', and although the community loves the businesses peppered throughout, careful planning has ensured that it will remain a living, vibrant residential neighbourhood.
Woodfield is not a museum, but a bustling community. Porches are ubiquitous and neighbours know each other well. The Woodfield Community Association is strong and vibrant. Each year it organises many events for the community. We have published two books "Residential to the Core" and "Woodfield Cooks".
