Arts.... with Backyard Chickens and Heritage Homes
Fernwood Village is at the heart of this residential neighbourhood. Fernwood Square’s charm has been captured in movies and is the community’s gathering place, with seasonal markets, FernFest and other lively celebrations. The village is also home to outstanding theatrical productions at the Belfry Theatre and Theatre Inconnu in the Paul Phillips Hall. Throughout the year, they draw Victorians to the village and its local shops, services and cozy eateries.
The Fernwood Neighbourhood Resource Group offers social programs at the Fernwood Community Centre, including daycare for children and a wide range of recreational programs for residents of all ages. The Fernwood Community Association has a long history of providing input into land use decisions, reflecting the interests of its diverse population and high ratio of young families.
Fernwood is also home to four schools, Victor School for children with special needs, Central Middle School, and the historic Victoria High and George Jay Elementary Schools.
