Good things come in small packages. As it turns out: London is full of tiny treasures (including these we’ve hyped previously). Here’s a few more itty-bitty bits of the city worth checking out!
🎶 Tiny Sounds
Pick up a tiny instrument and join the weekly ukulele jam at London Music Club on Wednesdays! Or, get your little humans involved with El Sistema, London Girls Rock Camp or any of the other amazing music programs this city offers.
📚 Tiny Libraries
We love the London Public Library for all the amazing things it does for our community. We also love that it has inspired our neighbours to construct their own, miniaturized versions of the library on their front lawns. Search “London, Ontario” for a Little Free Library near you.
✌️ Tiny Actions
Although we can probably identify systemic causes and organizational breakdowns at the root of our Big Problems, small, individual actions matter too. There are plenty of good folks in this city eager to partner on small actions for big change.
🏓 Tiny Sports
Not feeling up to a “good walk spoiled”? London’s got no shortage of destinations to practice your short game. And if your whites are all in the wash, there’s no dress code for these table-tops. Didn’t pass that G test yet but want the thrill of the wind in your air; champagne not included.
🛍️ Tiny Brands
Sure, Amazon and the Mall might be more convenient, but nothing has a bigger impact on your neighbours than shopping locally. We’re seeing a revitalization of shopping districts throughout the city with plenty of options (micro-chains and “littlepreneurs” included) to keep your dollars close to home.
BONUS: Probably the best review of our smallest park. Ever.
