West Queen West
This hip artistic area is located along Queen Street West, between Bathurst Street and Gladstone Avenue. West Queen West is also known as the art and design district. Over the past twenty-five years, West Queen West has become an international arts centre, and a major tourist attraction in Toronto, it’s no wonder this neighbourhood was named by Vogue magazine as one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the world.
The area is also home to beautiful Trinity-Bellwoods Park. There you’ll find a mix of people enjoying the large outdoor space filled with old trees, a baseball diamond, Trinity Community Recreation Centre and a dog bowl for the neighborhood dogs. Movie nights, art festivals and organized drum circles keep the park constantly buzzing with activity.
Nearly every storefront on the north side of Queen Street West is either a gallery, bar, or restaurant. The south side of the street is largely taken up by the buildings and grounds of the former Queen Street Mental Health Centre, now part of CAMH. The concentration of these unique restaurants, boutiques, and art galleries in Toronto make West Queen West a vibrant, dynamic neighbourhood to call home and makes it an choice to look for a house, condo and townhouses for sale.
The area is on the top of the list when it comes to prime real estate in Toronto. It welcomes culture and creativity along with the perfect mix of original fashions, antiques, cafes.
