Why We Love It
Trinity Bellwoods is one of the city’s most eclectic neighbourhoods, with a strong artistic community and bohemian vibe. This neighbourhood is home to one of the largest greenspaces in Toronto, Trinity Bellwoods Park, which is our (much smaller) version of Central Park. Trinity Bellwoods real estate has everything from Victorian homes on tree-lined homes to modern lofts in converted buildings.
Toronto Life gave this neighbourhood the number 6 spot in their annual Neighbourhood Survey, and even Vogue Magazine named West Queen West, part of Trinity-Bellwoods, one of the coolest places on the planet. It’s honestly filled with everything we love: homey coffee shops, the best dive bars around and independent boutiques and shops that are so nice, why would you go anywhere else?
You can’t be in Trinity Bellwoods without visiting the park for the day–the people watching is some of the best in the city. Trinity Bellwoods Park is the hub of the action, especially during those first few spring weekends when all of Toronto comes out of hibernation. You’ll find families with small children, groups of friends enjoying some food and drinks, and people playing games, music, and sports.
Some of the best restaurants in the city are located in Trinity Bellwoods and make sure you have a booking – the hottest spots book weeks in advance, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down at all. Le Swan, Bar Isabel, Bar Raval, La Palma – we could seriously go on and on. You won’t be disappointed in any of these. Trust.
Who Lives Here
From singles and young couples to families, Trinity Bellwoods real estate is home to a diverse group of Torontonians. Your neighbours could be a new young professional living in one of the low rise condo buildings, or a family that has been living in the same stunning house for years.
It's true that once you live in this area, it will be hard to imagine living anywhere else, regardless of your life stage.
Trinity Bellwoods is very accessible; there’s easy access to the TTC’s streetcars and buses that can connect you to the subway. It’s also incredibly walkable–you can run errands, grab a coffee, or enjoy a night out without needing to travel too far.
Local History Lesson
A prominent feature of the neighbourhood is the gates leading into Trinity Bellwoods Park. From 1852 to the early 1900s, the gates welcomed academics to Trinity College until the school relocated and the buildings were bought by the city and demolished, creating the parkland we know today.
Here are some of the best schools in the Trinity Bellwoods area:
- Ossington Old Orchard Jr. Public School (JK – 6)
