Midtown St. Catharines, or The Fitzgerald Neighbourhood as it is now known, is approximately located between Ontario Street, Carleton Street, Welland Avenue, and Niagara Street.
The location of this up-and-coming neighbourhood can’t be beaten. It is walking distance to downtown St. Catharines, which has thriving art, music, and culinary scenes, as well as the Library and farmers’ markets. Plus, you can quickly jump on the highway if you are commuting, or duck down the road to the local shopping mall.
Midtown has three schools, a new elementary school, a completely retrofitted middle school and a beautiful century-old, historic high school. Harriet Tubman Elementary School opened its doors in September 2015, the result of the amalgamation of older, underpopulated neighbourhood schools. Featuring state-of-the-art facilities and innovative programs, Harriet Tubman Public School is a huge asset to local families.
Midtown boasts urban charm with classic and bohemian architecture. Residents of The Fitzgerald enjoy the benefits of the Russell Avenue Community Centre and the Catharine Street Park playground and dog park. Plus, the Terry Fox Trail runs through the middle of the neighbourhood, which is perfect for family walks and bike rides.
