Downtown living is exquisite and it is only getting better with the addition of some incredible new facilities. Say hello to the brand new Academic and Cultural Arts Centre, a sports arena with 5500 seats and new condominium developments to boot. Walk to your dining destination; enjoy the beauty of the Montebello Park (near the Queen & Yates Streets Heritage Districts) designed by the same man that designed Central Park… go figure! Each September the Niagara Wine Festival visits this outdoor destination and thousands of wine lovers take to the streets for a celebration of Niagara’s vinous bounty. Shopping, rubbing elbows at the St. Catharines Club, the library, the farmers market, local music, good eats and great neighbours. The downtown is also nestled between 12 Mile Creek, a few old Indian Trails and the two major highways that grant access to the rest of the region with a quick drive… it sounds great already, but the party is just getting started.
