This inner-city neighbourhood in downtown Toronto is sprinkled with all sorts of demographics,
including single professionals and young families with children. Perhaps the two biggest attractions to this area - which is bordered by Ossington Ave, Dundas St West, Bathurst St and Queen St West - is the close proximity to the downtown core and Trinity-Bellwoods Park that spans the whole length of the area.
The housing front in Trinity Bellwoods features a myriad of well-kept and affordable Victorian homes that were predominantly constructed between 1880 and 1905. Many of the larger homes are located along tree-lined Shaw Street, while many of the small to medium homes back on or front the picturesque Trinity-Bellwoods Park, a pretty tree-lined boulevard that is twice as wide as the other streets in this neighbourhood.
There are also a few unique lofts offering residents an alternative option to the traditional Victorian homes found in the area.
Trinity-Bellwoods Park is the epicentre of the area, and is located right in the heart of it. Residents can enjoy the park’s children's playground, wading pool, baseball diamond, tennis courts, and an artificial ice rink. Those who are looking to go for a stroll, run or bike ride can enjoy the park’s path that’s highlighted by gorgeous cast iron lamp posts and plush greenery.
Shopping is in abundance in the community, all within walking distance. The Portugal Village shopping district is located along Dundas St and caters largely to the Portuguese community in the neighbourhood.
Queen St features a plethora of colorful and unique shops, art galleries, natural food markets, book shops, and eateries. Ossington Ave boasts among the highest concentrations of bars and restaurants in all of Toronto, catering to the youthful demographic in Trinity-Bellwoods.
Commuters can easily walk to a number of amenities in the area, or else hop on streetcars along Bathurst, Queen, and Ossington - all of which lead to the Bloor-Danforth subway. Motorists travelling in and out of Toronto can quickly access Lake Shore Boulevard and the Gardiner Expressway within five minutes.
