Bloor West Neighbourhood of Toronto
Bloor West Village is a vibrant area sandwiched between two neighbourhoods, Runnymede and Swansea. Bloor West homes attract many families with its tree-lined streets and lots of schools within walking distance. There is a strong community vibe with lots of local shops, small businesses, independent pubs and cafes thriving. If you’re looking to shop local, Bloor West is the place to go. The success of the community is attributed to the Bloor West Village BIA, which was the first of its kind in Canada and has become a leader in the city. The area also hosts a number of annual events and festivals.
Just east of Bloor West is stunning High Park, a 400 acre park home to numerous playgrounds, gardens, sports and recreation facilities and even a zoo. If you’re looking for a place to settle down, where kids have sidewalk chalk in hand and you can peruse the local shops to your hearts content, then this is the place for you.
