The Jingle Pot Road area of Nanaimo is remarkably rural, especially when one considers its proximity to both downtown and the big-box convenience of the north end of town. It's a pretty valley under the mountain, where water collects from Westwood Lake and Brannen Lake, and from a bunch of creeks coming off the mountain.
Before the Parkway was built in the late 1990's, Jinglepot was much more remote, one long loop curving from Harewood to the base of the mountain, and out toward Diver Lake. Now, two major intersections on the Parkway access Jingle Pot Rd. However, most traffic turns away from that direction, so it may be observed that the Jinglepot area is quiet AND convenient.
Homes in the Jinglepot area come in a variety of shapes and styles, with lavish equestrian properties shouldered up to modern split-levels, across the road from solid old farm homes.

There are two common explanations for why it's called Jingle Pot: 1) Miners and their wives used to say "There's gonna be a jingle in the pot" when they talked about payday - referring to coins placed in a vessel of some kind. 2) There was a coal mine with a crude setup for "jingling" something in a metal pot to indicate to coworkers when a load was ready to be lifted - or something.
