Danforth Village is a family friendly community, offering relatively affordable mid sized homes ideal for first time homeowners. Conveniently located on the Bloor-Danforth subway line, with nearby shopping on Danforth Avenue, this neighbourhood is a walker’s paradise. Danforth Avenue offers restaurants and shopping which reflect the multicultural flavour of the community. The Danforth Village neighbourhood also plays host to one of the most popular street festivals during the summer; Taste of the Danforth. The Taste of the Danforth celebrates the multicultural diversity of Toronto. A highlight of this festival is the food offered by hundreds of street vendors from many different cultures including Greek, Indian, Cuban and Thia.
Danforth Village is located south of Coleman Avenue, east of Victoria Park Avenue, connected by Danforth Avenue.
North of Danforth in the Danforth Village, the Church of England held possession over the land. Local street names like Glebeholme and Glebemount are little reminders of this area’s history. South of the Danforth, the Church of England did not hold the land. Families engaged in farming or the brick making business originally held possession over this land. Danforth Avenue was named after American contractor Asa Danforth, who built Kingston road in 1799. Ironically, Danforth was not involved whatsoever in the construction of Danforth Avenue. In 1908, when the city of Toronto was annexed, Danforth Village was subdivided. Two significant events in the development of this neighbourhood were the opening of the Bloor-Danforth subway in 1966, and the completion of the Prince Edward Viaduct in 1918.
