The Junction neighborhood is one of the oldest areas of Guelph. Roughly bordered by Wellington to the South, Paisley to the North, Edinburgh to the East and Silvercreek to the west the area is no longer a local secret, it is quickly becoming one of the “it” areas of Guelph.

As the name suggests, the Junction was founded as one of the original residential neighborhoods as what was, at the time, the city limits of Guelph where several railways entered town. The tracks are still very active with rail traffic to and from town though there is no longer a stop in the area.  The area is now a thriving and eclectic mix of residential and commercial space with local businesses like Fixed Gear Brewing, Backpedaling Bike Shop and Granite Homes bringing a strong economic flex to this quirky area.

The homes here are anything but cookie-cutter and range from large newly built duplexes, to classic two-story red bricks, to tiny wood-frame cottages. The people here are equally diverse. Many residents have lived in their homes for half a century or more while others have recently been drawn in by the accessibility to highways and walkability to downtown. Homes here are nearly constantly being renovated, rebuilt or refurbished as people choose to stay in the area longer and longer. 

People here are nearly as friendly as their dogs! Nearly every home seems to have dogs, cats or backyard chickens and in the summer there are vegetable gardens on full display. Neighbors know each other here and care about their well-being. Like most neighborhoods in Guelph The Junction has a community and feel all its own, come for a walk in our parks, a drink at or pub or stop by the Junction block party in the summer to see for yourself why so many love to call it ‘home’.
