Why We Love It
Parkdale has some of Toronto's most vibrant shopping districts and wonderful tree-lined side streets. When it comes to Parkdale real estate, you'll find everything from affordable Victorian homes to impressive mansions. The neighbourhood is also within walking distance of Toronto's waterfront parks, with great views and a relaxing atmosphere.
Over 70 of the neighbourhood's street planters were recently enhanced with over 560 photographs imprinted on their concrete bases. These include black-and-white photos of past and current residents, as well as archival images from the neighbourhood.
This project, known as Impressions, is one of North America’s largest outdoor street photo installations.
Who Lives Here
With some more affordable options in Parkdale real estate, the area is popular with families and young couples.
Parkdale real estate and community as a whole is easily accessible by TTC and by car. The neighbourhood is walkable, but it's better to explore by vehicle or public transit.
Local History Lesson
The Parkdale community has a deep history. From the late 1800s to the early 1900s, it was known as one of Toronto's most elite neighbourhoods. Once Sunnyside Park was almost completely demolished to make way for the Gardiner Expressway, the demographic of the area changed and many mansions were split into apartments.
