South Parkdale is located south of Queen Street West, west of Roncesvalles, east of Dufferin, and north of the Gardiner Expressway.
This neighbourhood has undergone some demographic changes since its establishment. In the early 1900s, South Parkdale was known as a well-to-do area of Toronto, filled with mansions and stately homes. The Depression brought an end to Parkdale’s prosperity. After World War II, the neighbourhood didn’t recover its former glory. City planners believed that the construction of the Gardiner Expressway would change South Parkdale’s fortunes.
It wasn’t until the later part of the 20th century that previous trends began reversing. Young families in search of affordable homes began to buy property in South Parkdale. They were drawn to the beautiful Victorian style buildings that were well within their budgets. In addition, artists began moving into South Parkdale, drawn by some of the same factors as young families (affordability and historic buildings in relatively good condition).
Today, the neighbourhood is home a diverse group of residents hailing from across the globe. You’ll find pockets of Hungarians, Czechs, Vietnamese, Polish, and First Nations members in South Parkdale. There are many shops and restaurants in the community, so you don’t have to travel too far for dining or shopping options. And its proximity to Toronto’s downtown makes South Parkdale an excellent place for commuters looking for an oasis in an urban environment.
