Yonge & Eglinton Neighbourhood of Toronto
Yonge and Eglinton has matured from its former reputation as “young and eligible” to an area where the population is largely young families. The area hasn’t slowed down though. Known as the highest foot-traffic area of Toronto, there are countless bars, restaurants, comedy clubs and amenities to keep you here. Toronto Life recently called it “the Las Vegas of midtown” with its plethora of Yonge and Eglinton condos for sale and office tower space at the core intersection.
This dense urban centre is surrounded by residential bliss and for those young families, there’s no shortage of schools here either. Just west of the Yonge Eglinton Centre is the 22-acre Eglinton Park. Here you’ll find five multi-purpose sports fields, four tennis courts, two baseball diamonds, a playground, wading pool and two ice rinks come winter.
The area is already very accessible and come 2021 will be the new Eglinton Crosstown LRT line that will cross Toronto as far east as Kennedy Station and as far west as Mount Denis.
