This mixed-culture, largely working-class neighbourhood is known for its incredible diversity. And that goes for its residential-commercial divide as well: proud, two- and three-storey semi and detached homes—of Edwardian and Victorian vintage—are quietly interwoven into the bustling business arteries of Bloor, College and Dufferin. Dufferin Grove Park is the largest green space in the area, bringing playground facilities, an ice-hockey rink, an organic farmers’ market, and a go-to community hub. In fact, “park as local treasure” may be an understatement. Its protector-support group, Friends of Dufferin Grove Park, is especially enthusiastic!
