Riverdale Neighbourhood of Toronto
Toronto’s Riverdale neighbourhood is the gateway to the east end. Nestled between The Danforth and Leslieville neighbourhoods, it shares a similar personality of a small village with tree-lined lots. Situated just below the Danforth, residents here have access to the many boutique shops, incredible restaurants, and amenities. There is lots of green space here with two large parks, Withrow Park on the east end of the neighbourhood and Riverdale Park which has some of the best views of the skyline.
Riverdale is also home of Toronto’s east end Chinatown with fruit and vegetable stands, restaurants, and bakeries. There are evident signs of gentrification happening in Riverdale east along Gerrard with new trendy restaurants, shops and pubs being added. The area, being quite residential, is close to many schools for young families.
