The Belfry theatre has been producing plays in the old church building, with its quaint bell tower since 1976. Explore a gallery, take in a play, or sit in Fernwood square and enjoy an espresso. The area is pedestrian friendly and an easy walk or bus ride from downtown.
A spring in Fernwood was the original source of drinking water for Victoria, and gave the area its first name, Springridge. Over time, Fernwood has been home to a mixture of residents, including the Hippie movement in the 1960ís. Vestiges of counter-culture are still present in this eclectic neighbourhood.
