High Park is one of Toronto’s most in demand neighbourhoods. Often referred to as “Old Toronto,” High Park is part of the historic Toronto Junction. It is bordered by Bloor Street to the South, Runnymede Road to the West, Annette Street to the North and the CPR/CNR railway tracks to the east.
Mostly residential, High Park is a home buyers dream. Filled with single-family and semi-detached homes built in the early 20th century, some of the oldest houses date back to the early 1800’s and are designed in traditional Victorian, Edwardian and Tudor Style architecture. A beautiful neighbourhood for anyone purchasing real estate in Toronto, High Park has been steadily growing since the construction of the Bloor-Danforth Subway. As such, many condominiums have been built along the subway path, providing more affordable options for homebuyers.
As a safe and friendly community, many young families buying their first home are drawn to the area because of its ideal location, vast amenities and competitive real estate prices. Established homeowners proudly show off their perfectly manicured lawns and well-kept homes, and many are lifetime residents who wouldn’t dream of moving elsewhere.
High Park blends traditional culture and values with modern experiences to create an eclectic vibe throughout the neighbourhoods. Flowing through community centres, shops, dining and entertainment, there is always something special being celebrated in High Park.
Set along the border of the popular Bloor Street shopping haven, High Park residents enjoy all the high-end shopping Toronto is famous for. Spend a day strolling along Bloor Street past a cascade of tourists and residents, as storefronts eagerly tempt guests to enjoy unbeatable cafes, restaurants and boutiques.
High Park takes its name from Toronto’s largest outdoor park, which is the crown jewel of this popular neighbourhood. This sprawling lakefront park is home to miles of trails, an off leash dog park, a zoo, an awesome playground and many eating facilities. Basking in the beautiful waterfront, surrounded by miles of lush greenery and an incredible Sakura cherry tree orchard, this is the perfect escape to enjoy a relaxing afternoon.
