Welcome to Onward Willow
The majority of the Onward Willow neighbourhood was developed between the early 1950s to the 1980’s and located northwest of downtown Guelph.
Bordered by Waterloo Ave, Edinburgh Rd, Speedvale Ave and the Hanlon Expressway, Onward Willow has developed a reputation over time of being a rougher part of town- but like anything else this should be taken with a grain of salt. There is a lot to be proud of in this area:
Onward Willow is one of the fastest growing areas of Guelph, in particular the modest post war bungalows found on streets such as Rosewood, Ridgewood, Western and Alma.
You’ll find the most diverse area in Guelph to be Onward Willow, with over 40 language spoken by its residents. This is mainly due to it’s high new Canadian population.
There are many amenities in the area including shopping, restaurants, gas stations, pharmacies and easy access to the Hanlon/ 401/ Hwy 7.
