Victoria Park Village
If you’re looking for a quiet residential neighbourhood, close to central Toronto, then look no further than Victoria Park Village. Bordering the Don Valley, the winding streets and cul-de-sacs make this the perfect neighbourhood for riding bikes and walking to school.
The homes are a mixture of detached and semi-detached, 2 storey, split levels and bungalow, built in the 1950s and 60s and many back onto parkland or the conservation area.
Named for a passionate conservationist, the Charles Sauriol Conservation Area winds its way through the Victoria Park Village neighbourhood and is part of the extensive East Don River Trail system. This beautiful urban forest, with bike trails and walkways, is filled with a variety of plant species and wildlife.
Plentiful shopping is located along the arterial streets which border the neighbourhood , including the Golden Mile, Eglinton Square and Victoria Terrace malls.The recently renovated and expanded Shops at Don Mills are just west of the Don Valley.
The neighbourhood is served by several bus services, all linking to the subway system, and the Don Valley Parkway provides access to downtown and Highway 401 by car. The Eglinton Crosstown LRT, currently under construction, will be a huge bonus to this neighbourhood when it is completed in 2020.
