The neighbourhood radiates out from the intersection of Gladstone and Fernwood Roads, where the Belfry Theatre, The Fernwood Inn, The Cornerstone Cafe (a community-based social enterprise), and She Said Gallery, each occupy a corner. This dynamic urban village also boasts many great restaurants and pubs, community centres and a active arts community.
The Belfry Theatre has been producing plays in the heart of Fernwood since 1976. A thriving music and arts scene has resulted in events such as FernFest (since 1995) and the Fernwood Art Stroll (since 2008) which take place annually during the fourth weekend in June. Little Fernwood Hall houses The Pandora Arts Collective, Little Fernwood Gallery, and Theatre Inconnu.
The neighbourhood is enlivened by 3 vibrant schools with active extra-curricular programs, community celebrations, and involved Parent Advisory Councils: Victoria High School (the oldest public high school west of Winnipeg and north of San Francisco), Central Middle School, and George Jay Elementary. Several registered preschools and day care programs also nurture young families in the area.
The Fernwood Community Association facilitates land use discussions (between developers, residents, and the City), oversees emergency preparedness and safety issues, operates the two neighbourhood allotment gardens, and provides meeting space in Little Fernwood Hall for various community gatherings including Cafe Sympatico and recovery support groups.
Fernwood is known throughout the city as a particularly warm, creative, and engaged neighbourhood.
