With its rolling hills, winding streets and towering trees, High Park North is one of Toronto's most beautiful neighbourhoods. The proximity to High Park, which is one of the largest and most popular parks in Toronto, as well as highly regarded schools, makes it a desirable location for families with children.
House styles vary widely, from stately Victorian residences, detached and semi-detached, that can be found on High Park Avenue, and narrow Victorian townhouses, to much more recently built flat roofed European style homes.
The area still contains many unrenovated dwellings and numerous rental properties. But that changes as young families move in and bring fresh tastes and a desire to modernize their homes.
Three condominium buildings on Quebec feature large balconies and generous size suites. These condominiums share an outdoor swimming pool and two tennis courts. More recent condo building at 70 High Park Avenue offers smaller units with balconies and high ceilings. Trendy new condo on Gothic offers upscale suites, and an old mansion, also on Gothic, has been converted to spacious lofts. New buildings are coming on the north side of Bloor street, east of High Park Avenue.
Several older rental apartment buildings are located on Quebec Avenue, High Park Avenue, Glenlake Avenue, Pacific Avenue and Oakmount Road. Some of these buildings have outdoor swimming pools, but the main attraction for the tenants are easy access to the subway, proximity to High Park and shopping, and the quality of the neighbourhood.
Fantastic shopping and dining is available nearby, in Bloor West Village. Three subway stations service the community; one of them, High Park, has entrances from High Park Avenue and from Quebec Avenue.
High Park North has several excellent schools.
