Nestled south of Dundas, north of Queen West, and between Ossington and Bathurst is the picturesque neighbourhood of Trinity-Bellwoods. This unique neighbourhood was once home to Captain Samuel Smith, naming the 100 acres of parkland that surrounded his estate ‘Gore Vale’ after the Lieutenant-Governor Francis Gore and the ravine that now comprises the park itself. With the park and the estate in the upper half of the property, the lower half was designated to the grounds of Trinity College, from which the current park would eventually take its namesake. The college is no longer in place, but the iron gates serve as a reminder as they remain standing at Queen and Strachan.
By the 1800’s, the property was changing and by 1900 the new neighbourhood was established with beautiful Victorian homes true to the time period. Today, that is the housing prevalent in the area, with lush properties on tree-lined streets with many yards backing onto the parkland itself. To get into this posh neighbourhood, an investment of over $800,000 will get you a refurbished Victorian or buyers can consider the less expensive option of one of the modern conversion lofts the area has to offer.
This area caters to singles and families alike, but parents will take great solace in the number of excellent schools that service the Trinity-Bellwoods area in both the public and catholic sectors.
The best perk of this neighbourhood is Trinity-Bellwoods Park that sits conveniently central to the homes and offers everything from a playground, picnic grounds, baseball diamond, tennis courts, and skating facilities for free skate and hockey programs. On Crawford Street is the Trinity Community Centre that offers additional amenities such as a gymnasium, indoor pool, running track, and weight room.
Street shopping and dining of all kinds are located with walking distance to most housing in the area. Queen Street offers locals everything from trendy cafes, art and design shops, galleries, bookstores, food markets, and a plethora of dining options. Ossington Avenue caters to the younger crowd, offering a number of bars and restaurants for an energetic nightlife, and cafes and shopping to enjoy during the day. A must-see is The Portugal Village shopping district along Dundas catering to the Portuguese population, but offering tasty treats to anyone that comes by to say hello!
Bathurst and Ossington streetcars provide transit to commuters along the Bloor-Danforth subway line, and motorists can conveniently travel in, out, and around the city via Lakeshore or the Gardiner which are only minutes away!Back to Hoods
