Remarkably rural homes in south Nanaimo

South Jingle Pot Overview

The South Jingle Pot neighbourhood is located in a rather rural part of Nanaimo, especially in consideration to its proximity to all amenities. Just a 15 minute drive from this sanctuary will bring you to Nanaimo's largest malls and big stores like Costco and Wal-Mart. Also within driving distance is the Nanaimo Aquatic Centre (with its swimming pools, water slides, and fitness facility) the Nanaimo Ice Rink, and the ball field.

South Jingle Pot Real Estate

Real estate in South Jingle Pot is typically on the pricier side, and this is largely because of the secluded feeling of the neighbourhood and its natural beauty. Some homes back onto the ravine, and this additional privacy is quite desirable. 

Architecturally, homes in South Jingle Pot include both older (generally single-storey) homes, as well as newer, more modern constructions (sometimes custom). Multi-storey properties here come with generous square footage, which means multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, and occasionally rental suite opportunities.

Mining History

Perhaps one of Nanaimo's most recognizable names, the Jingle Pot areas (North Jingle Pot and South Jingle Pot) are in fact rooted in the town's mining history.

There's certainly more than one version of the local tales, most of which are linked to the sounds of a clanging bucket. For some it meant the miners bringing home pots filled with coin after a hard week at work, and others believe it was a message to bring the carts up, a ringing against a bucket shrill enough to serve as a signal.

Top South Jingle Pot Highlights & Attractions

Almost entirely residential, South Jingle Pot is a family-oriented neighbourhood with large properties situated on quiet streets. If it feels like an escape tucked away from the busyness of the city, that's because it kind of is. The Westwood Ravine also splits the neighbourhood in half. 

Westwood Lake Park is the top attraction of South Jingle Pot. This beautiful city park features a trail around the lake (as well as trails leading into the nature sanctuary to the east), a playground for the kids, a campground, a fishing pier, and a small beach. 

South Jingle Pot is, notably, a great neighbourhood for families. Nearby schools include Mountain View Elementary, Nanaimo District Secondary School, Fairview Community Elementary, Nanaimo Christian Elementary, and Georgia Avenue Community Elementary. Of course just across the highway, on the hill overlooking the strait, is Vancouver Island University (VIU) - a top rated institution for post-secondary education.
