Sudbury's first neighbourhood
As the historic core of the city, Greater Downtown radiates from the Business Improvement Area (BIA), skirting the western shore of Ramsey Lake at Bell Park and reaching into many of Sudbury’s established neighbourhoods.
According to the 2006 Census, the Greater Downtown population has increased by 14% since 2001. It is easily accessible from all main arteries, and is midway between New Sudbury and the South End – Sudbury’s most populated residential areas.
The area hosts Greater Sudbury’s largest concentration of businesses and services including government, banking, financial, health care. More than 50 restaurants, cafes, bakeries and other food specialty shops cater to daily shoppers and a working population of 9,000+.
Greater Downtown is the centre of Sudbury’s arts, culture and entertainment scene with the Sudbury Theatre Centre, northern Ontario’s premier professional theatre company, the Art Gallery of Sudbury and the Sudbury Arena. Many of Sudbury’s oldest buildings, historical points of interest as well as Market Square, the home of the downtown Farmers’ Market are located in the downtown core.
