The neighbourhood now known as High Park North, or simply High Park, was formerly the Town of West Toronto Junction. It officially became a part of Toronto in 1909, with a boom of homes developed around the park after the construction of the Bloor-Danforth Station.
The Real Estate
High Park is a mainly residential neighbourhood, filled with beautiful traditional homes that were built in the early 20th century. Victorian, Edwardian and Tudor style houses line quiet, winding streets with plenty of tall oak trees in sight. Each house is unique, some with fine details like stained glass windows and classic French doors.
Choose from the Runnymede Library or High Park Library for a quiet day inside, or visit other recreational options throughout the area including the Annette Recreation Centre and High Park Village Fitness And Recreation Centre.
The major attraction is High Park itself: Toronto’s largest and most popular green space. A small zoo, off leash dog park, picnic area, trails, and more within the park offers something for everyone. You can catch Shakespeare In The Park during the summer, see the famous cherry blossom trees blooming in the spring, and skate on the scenic Grenadier Pond in the winter.
There’s no limit to the unique shops around, with over 100 cafes, restaurants and stores just a short walk away. High Park is close to Bloor West Village, a neighbourhood known for its European roots and specialty shops, and Junction Gardens along Dundas Street West.
Travelling throughout the city is easy with multiple stations close by; Runnymede Station, High Park Station and Keele Station along the Bloor-Danforth subway line are only a few minutes away.
