Saint Thomas Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 25 photos

It's a nice small city in southwestern Ontario, Canada. It is the seat for Elgin County and part of the greater London urban area.

The city, located at the intersection of two historical roads, was first settled in 1810. It was named the seat of the new Elgin County in 1844 and was incorporated as a village in 1852, as a town in 1861, and as a city in 1881.

The city was named after Thomas Talbot who helped promote the development of this region during the early 19th century.

There are two major parks in the city: Pinafore Park in the south, beside Pinafore Lake; and Waterworks Park in the north, straddled by Kettle Creek and the Waterworks Reservoir nearby.

The Trans Canada Trail goes through St. Thomas, with a pavilion located in Jonas Street Park.
