Originally designed as post-war housing built for homecoming veterans in the 1940s, Churchill Downs caters largely to a mature population. Affordable, reasonably-sized homes provide low overhead for singles, young families, and seniors. However, the neighbourhood is also home to some uniquely designed homes. Large lots and old-growth trees only add to the beauty of the area.
Close to Imperial and McDermid public and St. Michael’s separate elementary schools, young children have just a short walk to class. Usher Collegiate and Harvest City Christian Academy provide for grades nine through twelve. Parks and sporting grounds provide plenty of after-school entertainment.
Only minutes from downtown and the Northgate mall, groceries, restaurants and shopping are no concern for residents of Churchill Downs. Pride in ownership is very apparent in the neighbourhood, with beautifully landscaped yards and well-maintained homes. Churchill Downs is a great place for people from all walks of life.
