Subdivision Construction began in the 1960's with 4 plexes and condos running behind Thames-Lea Plaza on Baldoon Rd. off of Keil Dr. and continued with affordable single family dwellings on the first street off of Baldoon which is Lark St. Today Lark St. runs from one end of the subdivision to the other with a Neighborhood Park on the corner of Lark and Baldoon Rd. and John Uyen Catholic Elementary School at the other end of Lark St. Streets and quiet crescents run on both sides of Lark St., many having walkways running behind them with green areas, great for family outings.
A short distance east on McNaughton Ave. on the north end of the Subdivision is Tecumseh Public Elementary School.
The St. Clair Catholic School Board is currently building a 2 story school on McNaughton Ave. which will accommodate 568 students and bring the students of St. Vincent, Our Lady of Fatima and St. Agnes under one roof.
The Soccer Fields behind the County Courthouse are just on the other side of Baldoon Rd. following Lark St across and in the summer are filled with children of all ages and families watching their youngsters compete.The newly renovated Thames Lea Plaza with the new Mercato Grocery Store, a Fitness establishment, Giant Tiger Store, a Dollar Store, Canadian Tire, Shoe Store, Children's Store, Bank and various other stores makes shopping very convenient for those living in the area. Just a short distance past the Plaza are fast food restaurants, a new Shoppers Drug Store, a Medical Building and the the location of the new YMCA opened in July 2011. Several Churches of different denominations are also close. This is a very desirable family orientated neighborhood with affordable pricing.
