Riverdale is a large, thriving neighbourhood in Toronto’s east end. Bound by Danforth Avenue to the north, Jones Avenue and Leslieville to the east, Lake Shore Blvd to the south and the Don River Valley to the west. Considered one of Toronto’s most sought after neighbourhoods, Riverdale has a vibrant art scene, expansive parks, great schools and a solid market stock. Made up of a number of smaller neighbourhoods, Riverdale offers something for everyone.
Riverdale is a very vibrant and multicultural area. Danforth Avenue, commonly known as “The Danforth,” is the heart of Greektown. Here you’ll find a high concentration of Greek restaurants and shops, legacy of the immigrants that settled here decades before. Further south along Broadview Avenue at Gerrard Street is Toronto’s second Chinatown where Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants and stores dominate the area. Gerrard Street East is home to Little India with many Indian stores, restaurants and markets.
With easy access to the Danforth subway line, frequent bus and streetcar routes, getting around Riverdale is easy. Quick access to the Don Valley Parkway allows for quick connections to other parts of the city.
Here you’ll find beautiful Victorian and Edwardian homes along tree-lined streets as well as renovated bungalows and funky lofts.
There are several parks and ample green spaces in Riverdale. Withrow Park, Riverdale Park, Kempton Howard Park and Jimmie Simpson Park all serve as great places for residents when it comes to various activities such as swimming in the warmer months and tobogganing in winter. Splash pads, ice rinks and baseball diamonds ensure there is plenty to do for everyone.
If your children are of the four-legged variety, there are plenty of dog parks and trails to enjoy. Plus you can enjoy some of the best views of the Toronto skyline.
With its origins as a movie theatre, the Danforth Music Hall has entertained the masses for a century. The Allen’s Danforth, named after its owner the Allen Theatre Chain, dates back to 1919. The venue started featuring live acts during the late 1070s thus adding “music hall” to its name. Today, the Danforth Music Hall is a popular concert venue for local and international artists.
The origins of the Opera House go back to the early 1900s when it was a Vaudeville theatre. Catering to the growing population of the city, this popular form of entertainment combined musical numbers and theatrical spectacles with circus elements. The theatre produced five shows a day until it was replaced by another popular entertainment, the movies. Today, the Opera House is a popular venue for concerts, shows and various event.
The annual Taste of the Danforth festival has been celebrating all things Greek for the last quarter of a century. Held over a weekend in August, the festival is a celebration Greek culture and of multiculturalism in the city. Attendees have an opportunity to sample food from local vendors, enjoy numerous performances and games. Definitely a must-see event of the summer.
As you visit the shops at Carrot Common, it’s hard to believe that this was once a car dealership. Anchored by the grocery store the Big Carrot, this mini outdoor mall is where you’ll find health food, gourmet coffee, juices, books, shops and health-related services.
