The St. George-Grosvenor Neighbourhood has long been identified as an area of outstanding architectural, historical and natural characteristics that are linked through a history dominated by residences, institutions, and Gibbons Park.
Institutions such as Huron College, Matthews Hall and Western Fair District all had origins in the St. George-Grosvenor Neighbourhood and some, such as St. Josephs Health Care and Mount Hope Centre for Long Term Care, continue to maintain a presence in the area to this day.
In 1926, the City of London acquired a gift of substantial park land in honour of a worthy local family; Londoners from across the City have been enjoying Gibbons Park ever since. Originally consisting of about 13 acres, the City has continued to add additional lands to the park until in 1964 the area had grown to 60 acres.
