Toronto Real Estate - North Riverdale, a community with a park in the middle
North Riverdale neighbourhood
North Riverdale is located immediately east of the Don Valley, and reaches from Gerrard Avenue in the south to Danforth Avenue in the north and Pape Avenue in the east.
Popularity of this lovely area can be attributed to proximity to vibrant shopping and dining on Danforth between Broadview and Pape, excellent schools, parks, easy access to subway (three subway stops on the Bloor-Danforth line), interesting home styles, tall trees, and great mix of residents, majority of them professional, young and affluent, young families, and many artists.
Home styles range from two and three storey Victorian dating from between 1880 and 1924, through stately Edwardian residences to some modern houses built as infill. Riverdale houses differ in size and style, with some small two bedroom semi-detached homes and townhouses sitting alongside large detached five bedroom residences.
Withrow Park, located in the centre of the neighbourhood contains tennis courts, baseball diamond, playgrounds, wading pool, an off-leash dog area, washrooms, water fountains and benches.
