This neighbourhood is popular with young families who appreciate the convenience of the location just west of downtown.The close proximity to High Park, Toronto waterfront bicycle and walking trails, easy access to public transit. Great selection of different types of living spaces for all kinds of people. Tons of amazing homes, semis or detached houses. Great loft conversions and some new built as well.
The whole neighborhood is well grounded. Very family oriented, friendly. In terms of a local uniqueness there is the ROBERT WATSON LOFTS the COLUMBUS LOFTS and the SORAUREN LOFTS - all offering live / work spaces like no other in the city.
90% of the neighborhood is made up of incredible housing stock where families of all kinds can feel safe. Great school options for children and always tons to do with High Park being so close as well as the Polish Festival on Roncesvalles Ave which is a yearly fun thing to do.
