Riverdale features a large collection of two- and three-storey Victorian homes, dating back to the late 1800s and early 1900s, as well as many smaller homes and some recently-built, ultra-modern houses. Parking is usually off one of the neighbourhood’s many laneways, or by city permit, on the street.
This popular and diverse, family neighbourhood lies just east of the Don Valley, and includes Toronto’s vibrant Greektown along its northern boundary, Danforth Avenue – the largest Greek community in North America, and home to a great variety of restaurants, retail stores, and other Greek-run businesses. The neighbourhood’s southern boundary, Gerrard St., is home to many Chinese grocery stores, bakeries, and restaurants.
Danforth and Gerrard are Riverdale’s epicentre for shopping, dining, and a full range of services. For recreation, you can’t beat the neighbourhood’s beautiful parks. The huge Riverdale Park East slopes down the Don Valley hillside on the west side of Broadview Avenue, and offers facilities for hockey, swimming, tennis, soccer and baseball, as well as a running track. It’s a favourite in winter for tobogganing. Withrow Park also features ball diamonds, tennis courts, as well as an off-leash area for dogs, a wading pool, a playground, and an outdoor ice rink.
Transit is a big draw for the area, with Bloor line running along Danforth Avenue.
