Woodlawn, as its name suggests, is a place of trees, lawns and suburban homes. Woodlawn is a tightly knit community of 30, to 50 year old homes which are well appointed and nicely sited on 50 or 100 foot frontage lots. Woodlawn is still somewhat overlooked and offers great potential in a conveniently located family oriented neighbourhood.
