What Makes Riverdale So Great?

Riverdale, located just across the Don River from Downtown Toronto, is a large, thriving, and vibrant neighbourhood that an increasing number of young families and professionals are starting to move into. Riverdale real estate is home to a rising art scene on Queen East, the notable areas of Greektown and Chinatown East, and some of the best views of the city around Riverdale Park.

Riverdale real estate offers something for just about everyone. Looking for a nice night out, great shopping, or a picnic in the park? Riverdale has easily got you covered and even made my list of some of the best places to live in Toronto.

Types of Homes

Because Riverdale is so large, you can find all sorts of different styles in the area. You’ll find gutted and completely renovated bungalows, sitting comfortably right next to historic multi-story houses. Variety is the name of the game, which is what has made this area so popular for families making the move.

If condo or loft living is your thing, check out Riverside Lofts (747 Queen Street East) and Glebe Lofts (660 Pape Avenue).

You Should See

If it’s the Summer, you should plan to attend the Taste of the Danforth festival. Each year, it draws record numbers to celebrate all the fabulous food served by all the restaurants along the Danforth. You’ll also want to check out Riverdale Park; in my opinion, it boasts some of the best views of the skyline you’ll ever see.

Neighbourhood Hotspots

The Danforth has always been known for 2 things: Greektown and the Taste of the Danforth, but with all the new people moving into the area, the Danforth has attracted a rich selection of great shops, independent coffee shops, and top-notch restaurants. If you’re in the area, you’ll want to check out Broadview Espresso (for some great, local coffee), Dora Keogh (for a traditional Irish pub experience), and The Big Carrot (for a great selection of local and organic food).

Getting Around

If you’re up by the Danforth, then getting around is not a problem at all; The Danforth subway line runs, well, straight down the Danforth and then quickly connects the area with the downtown core. In the southern part of Riverdale, streetcars run through all the major streets, including both Gerrard and Queen Street.
