The northern part of the Riverdale neighbourhood is located south of Danforth Avenue, east of the Don Valley Parkway, west of Pape Avenue, and north of Gerrard Street.
Riverdale used to be known as Riverside. It started off as a small rural community outside of the City of Toronto. That changed when the Grand Trunk Railroad was established. In 1884, Toronto annexed the area north of Queen Street. Nearly 35 years later, the Prince Edward Viaduct opened, linking Riverdale with the rest of Toronto west of the Don River.
Today, the neighbourhood is known for its tree-lined streets, proximity to green spaces (Riverdale Park, Withrow Park, and Jimmie Simpson Park are all close by), and excellent Greek food (the Danforth is part of Riverdale, and it’s home to the annual Taste of the Danforth Festival, celebrating Greek cuisine and culture in Toronto). There’s also a Chinatown shopping district around Gerrard and Broadview, and when you head over to Queen Broadview Village, you’ll find a lovely selection of stores selling antiques.
Another advantage of living in North Riverdale is accessibility to transportation. If you don’t drive, you’re close to the Danforth subway line. Have a car? You can get to where you need to go via the Don Valley Parkway, Lake Shore Boulevard, and the Gardiner Expressway.
