Passing through Parkdale today you will quickly realize it is the most interesting and diverse of neighbourhoods experiencing its own organic renovation. Mansions being restored next to low-income housing, 5-star restaurants next to convenience marts, and a vibrant mix of immigrants who have called this area home is what you will find in Parkdale. Parkdale’s story continues to grow!
Heading west from Dufferin Street to Roncesvalles Avenue, north to Bloor and south to Lakeshore is where you will find Parkdale. Parkdale can be found in Toronto Real Estate District W01.
There once was the beautiful Sunnyside Beach and Amusement Park, Toronto’s version of Coney Island. Being close to this area and its waterfront fun made it the place to be among the up and coming Torontonians of the early 20s. Sadly, with the progress and addition of the Gardiner Expressway, Sunnyside was shut down and Parkdale became cut off from the waterfront.
