Parkdale

Vintage meets Bohemia meets re-gentrification

Highlights:

About Parkdale:

Bohemian Parkdale is home to some of Toronto’s most vibrant shopping districts, while lush tree lined streets, beautiful Victorian homes, and impressive mansions are beautiful example of re-gentrification.

The streets are packed with dozens of swish coffee shops, local art galleries, antique stores, vintage boutiques, and much more. You’ll find a ton of character due to the diverse demographic, so if you’ve got a few bucks and an open mind, there are still great investments to be made here.

History of Parkdale

  • In the late 1800s, elite Parkdale was one of Toronto’s most desirable addresses.
  • Anderson Ruffin Abbott, the first black Canadian doctor lived on Dowling Avenue and attended to Abraham Lincoln as he lay dying from gunshot wounds 1865. The Abbott Café on Spencer Avenue is named in his honour.
  • Sunnyside Amusement Park was opened in 1922, providing a popular day vacation for Torontonians.
  • In 1956, Sunnyside was shut down by the city to make room for the Gardiner Expressway and a revamped Lake Shore Boulevard. Unfortunately, this cut Parkdale off from the lake, and the neighbourhood went into decline.
  • One of the few surviving pieces of Sunnyside amusement park with the Bathing Pavilion and the Gus Ryder Pool – The Palais Royale hosted big band performers such as Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, Count Basie, Bert Niosi, and Duke Ellington.

Admire the Architecture in Parkdale

Stately older mansions, classic art deco apartment buildings, and towering mature trees-lined streets, give this neighbourhood its unique character.

Meet the Locals

Diverse, both higher and lower income families including Tibetan, West Indian, and North African, co-exists with artists and musicians giving this pocket of Toronto its bohemian vibe.

Don’t Miss Out!

With a new generation settling down, fixing up the older mansions and sprucing up The Victorians, homes tend to sell quickly.
