Why You Would Want To Live in South Jinglepot

If larger properties and peace and quiet are on your wish list then South Jingle Pot is a neighbourhood worth exploring. 

Area Overview

Considered by many to be a rural paradise, the majority of the South Jingle Pot area consists of  acreages, sprawling properties, and farms with newer subdivisions emerging closer to the downtown area.  There is an abundance of green space and access to recreational activities, yet at the south end is just minutes from shopping and all downtown amenities.

Schools

The Nanaimo Christian School is located in South Jingle Pot. The area’s elementary school students in the public school system would go to Mountain View Elementary in North Jingle Pot for K to Grade 7 while students in Grade 8 -12 would go to Nanaimo District Secondary School located in the University District.

Shopping

Residents of South Jingle Pot are minutes away from shopping options in Central Nanaimo and the Old City while the proximity to the highway allows convenient access to all other retail areas in the community.

Recreational Opportunities

Those who call both South and North Jingle Pot home enjoy a tranquil, rural setting  in the valley under Mt. Benson, with access to an abundance of year-round outdoor recreational activities on their doorsteps from swimming and paddle boating to fishing, and from walking and hiking to mountain biking.

Entertainment

Residents of South Jinglepot are well situated to access all entertainment options offered throughout the Nanaimo area from bowling and arcade games at Splitsville in the neighboring University District to an art exhibition in the Old City just minutes away, while sports fans won't have to travel far to watch a Clippers hockey game or any of Nanaimo's other sports teams.

Restaurants

Predominantly rural, residents in South Jingle Pot are accustomed to the short car ride to the downtown core and to other communities and therefore to the abundance of dining options offered throughout Nanaimo. However the newly opened Christina’s on the Lake at Westwood Lake does provide a local dining venue offering good food with the beautiful backdrop of the lake.

Parks

Much of the Jingle Pot area is rural and therefore offers its own outdoor recreational opportunities however South Jingle Pot is perhaps best known for the Westwood Lake Park one of the city’s best loved parks.  Only 4km from downtown Nanaimo, the forested park in the foothills of Mt. Benson, is a favourite choice for swimmers, paddlers, and anglers while the 5km+ trail around the lake provides an ideal setting for walkers, runners, and mountain bikers. Connected by a trail to the Westwood Lake area is the Morrell Nature Sanctuary - private, but open to the public, the sanctuary is set on 278 acres of forested park that includes a small lake, a picnic shelter, a rocky viewpoint and a beaver pond.
