Bloor West Village
The heart of Bloor West Village is the retail shopping along Bloor Street which attracts clientele from all over the city. Food is one of the main attractions with a multitude of bakeries, specialty food stores, fruit and vegetable markets, cafes and restaurants.
The local Business Association organizes community events throughout the year including a June Sidewalk Sale, a July Festival, Ukranian Festival and Sidewalk Sale, Halloween Festival, Calvacade of Lights, and Christmas in the Village.
The original homes in the area were built between 1910 and the 1920s and typically feature deep front porches overlooking tree-lined streets. This is the kind of community where neighbours stop and “visit” as they pass by.
Nearby High Park, Toronto’s largest public park at almost 400 acres, features hiking trails, sports facilities, diverse vegetation, a beautiful lakefront, a dog park, and a zoo, as well as playgrounds for children, a couple of cafes, greenhouses, picnic areas, and many events throughout the year.
With quick and easy access to downtown via the Bloor subway line, it’s not surprising Bloor West Village is a sought after destination for singles and young families.
