Parkdale is primarily a residential area of the city, with semi-detached homes predominating tree-lined side streets, many which also offer street parquettes. Homes date from the 19th Century and early 20th Century. Around 1900, the area was quite a well-to-do suburb and many older mansions from around 1900 still exist, often converted to multi-unit buildings. Parkdale’s commercial districts are located on King Street and Queen Street West, with the latter offering a large proportion of restaurants and bars, as well as local shops and art galleries. Commercial space is mostly storefronts oriented toward local customers.
This lively and multicultural residential neighbourhood provides wide, pedestrian friendly sidewalks, colourful street art and a mix of Victorian mansions and apartment buildings. Enjoy the international mix of restaurants, from cheap eats to refined bistros, hip vintage stores, indie boutiques and galleries on Queen Street West, as well as pubs. To the south of Parkdale, the area is bordered by transportation uses, including the railway, Gardiner Expressway and Lake Shore Boulevard. South of the transportation corridor, the shoreline is mostly park land, with recreational clubs such as the Argonaut Rowing Club and Boulevard Club (formerly the Parkdale Canoe Club) on the water.
Parkdale is conveniently located within walking distance of High Park and the recreational paths and parks along Toronto’s waterfront. Parkdale has four community centres that serve its residents.
Streetcar service on Queen Street, King Street, Dundas Street, Roncesvalles Avenue, and Macdonell Avenue, connect passengers to the downtown, or to subway stations on the Bloor-Danforth subway line. Motorists are just minutes from downtown. There is direct access to both the Gardiner Expressway and Lake Shore Boulevard, at the south end of Parkdale.
