Updated: Jan 8, 2019
Infrastructure, Community and Family Neighbourhoods - Living in East End of St. Catharines.
Welcome to St Catharines.
A wonderful city with proud communities, hard working people and buildings conserved with their heritage.
Note: This section of St. Catharines is rarely referred to as the east end of St. Catharines and is more commonly referenced as either Merriton or Secord Woods although both are technically separate neighbourhoods.
With easy access to all necessities, the QEW and the 406 highways, as well as large accommodating homes, this is a family friendly part of St. Catharines.
Merriton - This neighbourhood encompasses many amenities and entertainment activities. Home to the Pen Centre offering you a cinema and tons of great shopping. You can easily find Restaurants, Gyms, Bars and much more! Merriton is also seeing revitalization in many ways from building renovations and new stores to road and infrastructure improvements. With all its excitement and sense of community, Merriton has been aptly named the "the heart of St. Catharines".
Secord Woods - The largest neighbourhood in the East End. Secord Woods is a family and first time home buyers' favorite. Secord Woods offers a range of housing choices, from older homes to new residential developments seen on streets bordering the Welland Canal.
Niagara Gardens - This neighbourhood borders the picturesque community of Glenridge. There is a lot of new housing development happening in this section of the east end. Some streets are less than ideal while others are just fine.
The east side of St. Catharines is a hub for activity, community and modernization. And yet, many historic areas and important buildings have kept their old-world charm resulting in an excellent blend of old and new.
There is a lot happening here and many are excited about the future possibilities.
