We love Fernwood. We love the people, businesses, heart & soul, music, gardens, painted poles, festivals, the vibe, hangouts, and all of the beautiful homes. Our mission is to ensure the social, environmental, and financial sustainability of the neighbourhood. We believe in our community, the local businesses, the success of our residents, and support we can offer each other.
Fernwood Village is walking distance from most homes in the neighbourhood, and offers a variety of fun activities. Our little Village has soul, where you can grab a coffee at the Cornerstone Cafe, have a beer with friends and catch the game at the Fernwood Inn, drink fine wine and sample some of the best food on the Island at Ca Va Bistro Moderne and Stage Wine Bar, pick up your groceries at Aubergine Specialty Foods, catch an award-winning play at the Belfry Theatre, take in an art opening at Theatre Inconnu, get your hair done at Studio 1313 or Who Dyd Your Hair, take an art class at The Paint Box School of Art, practice at The Yoga Den, take a karate class at the Fernwood Community Centre, receive all your health and wellness needs at many different places, and much, much more all within a few footsteps.
Of course, if you live in Fernwood, you already know this. But if you don’t, come visit us sometime and check out all we have to offer. You’ll come for the great experiences, and stay for the great people and the friendly vibe. We are constantly looking for new and creative ways to support our neighbourhood while keeping the soul of Fernwood.
