Riverdale

 

 

Gerrard India Bazaar, Greek Town on Danforth, East Chinatown, Danforth by the Valley, Leslieville, Queen Broadview Village: These exciting commercial districts make up the exciting community of Riverdale.


Situated next to Toronto's downtown core, Riverdale runs East from Don Valley to Coxwell Avenue, and South from the Old Coty of Toronto boundary (near Mortimer Avenue) to the shore of Lake Ontario.


There you will discover fine dining establishments, ethnic eateries, funky cafes and great specialty shops. You'll enjoy green spaces afforded by plentiful parks, tree lined residential streets and the trendy loft/work spaces that are revitalizing old industrial neighborhoods.


Until the mid-1800s, Riverdale consisted of several small rural communities and industrial sites. These communities and industries provided products and services to the growing City of Toronto, located on Western side of Don Valley.


Starting in 1884, amalgamation made Riverdale part of Toronto. Transportation improved and the area offered housing to workers and waves of immigrants. Today, Riverdale is vibrant community that is home to urbanites of all ages, from all backgrounds and from all walks of life.


Be swept away by the exotic opulence of Gerrard India Bazaar, Mediterranean flair of Greek Town on Danforth and the colorful bustle of East Chinatown. One could enjoy upscale shopping and dining in Danforth by Valley, search for funky finds in Leslieville and step into the past in historic Queen Broadview Village.
