As a Newcomer, the feeling of isolation and not knowing where to find answers to your questions can be overwhelming. Join this session to learn about the supports that will help you settle into London, with a focus on finding a home, health services, and enjoying activities that make London feel like home.

Enjoy London Outdoors




London is called The Forest City in reference to its numerous, beautiful pathways and acres of rolling parkland. Its tree-lined boulevards and green parks invite cyclists and pedestrians to discover the charms of the city, built at the fork of the Thames River. London is also home to 21 beautiful Environmentally Significant Areas that feature native plants, unique wildlife and bountiful forests. Find maps and descriptions for each of these public areas here.

Along with beautiful ESA, The City of London offers residents the opportunity to splash through community spray pads, take part in fitness activities, or even participate in the community garden projects. Learn more.
