Though the neighbourhood’s major streets are walled with condos, there are also plenty of kid-centric features. June Rowlands Park is equipped with a splash pad, a playground and plenty of lush trees. Maurice Cody Junior Public School has an environmental focus, with a grassy schoolyard and a woodland garden. And to further satisfy the adults, Mount Pleasant is lined with bistros, bars and pâtisseries.
