South Jinglepot, Nanaimo houses for sale are located in a remarkably 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 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.
Residents from nearby and afar enjoy Westwood Lake for its walking and running trails (5.51km around the lake), as well as its opportunities for canoeing and kayaking. The main beach area is lifeguard patrolled from June-August, and my kids love the playground! Westwood Lake Campgrounds are also close by, and they’re great for the warm summer months.
Perhaps one of Nanaimo’s most recognizable names, the Jingle Pot areas 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.
Nearby schools include Mountain View Elementary, Nanaimo District Secondary School, Fairview Community Elementary, Nanaimo Christian Elementary, and Georgia Avenue Community Elementary.
