Old Glenridge was a one of the first and most prominent St. Catharines suburban communities, established in the 19th and 20th centuries, featuring historic, Tudor-style houses on large lots (Tudor period architecture, originally developed between 1485-1603, features steeply pitched roofs, tall, narrow doors and windows, small window panes, and large chimneys often topped with decorative chimney pots). You can see some of these architectural features in the stately Tudor homes scattered through the neighbourhood, particularly along the northern reaches of South Drive and along Willowdale Avenue.


Burgoyne Woods is intended for active and passive recreation, including hiking and tobogganing. The barbecue firepits are available for families to roast marshmallows and relax after an active winter day.
