We are located right next to Dundas Square which is like the Times Square of downtown Toronto. Please be assured that Toronto is by far the safest metropolitan city in North America, and we encourage all our guests to explore the city by foot, as it is meant to be discovered. Be at the centre of all the action and walking distance from fantastic restaurants, cafes, shops, cinemas, liquor stores, bars, patios and everything else at your doorstep.
There is one of the largest supermarkets in the city just a couple blocks away, and we are a short walk from one of the largest parks in the city, complete with swimming pool, tennis courts, skating rink, hiking trails and an awesome tobogganing hill. We are happy to share some of our favourite places with you. Biking trails in the Don Valley are 10 minutes away and a great way to get some exercise car-free! Many bike lanes in the city on main streets.
There is so much to see! Cabbagetown has the largest amount of Victorian Houses outside of San Francisco. The Distillery District is just south on Parliament and is set in a former whiskey plant where you can find cobblestone streets, coffee shops, shopping, and theatres. The focus of the area is Allan Gardens with its abundance of gardens in the summer and a greenhouse packed full of plant life in the winter. The area is a blend of old and new, residential and commercial, houses and high rises, history and new sites all mixed together. Full of historical churches, restaurants, shopping and many other unique venue. The area is one of Toronto’s hottest new spots to live and work.
Our section of the Garden District is soon to be designated a Heritage Conservation District. HCDs are designated because the areas they protect are considered to be historically or culturally significant and require special care and attention in the planning process to ensure that they are conserved. Stroll through one of the many parks and green spaces in a newly designated area in Toronto known as The Garden District. The district is located between Wellesley and Queen streets; Yonge and Sherbourne streets and encompasses many gardens and parks.
We are located nearby to the Entertainment District which is the home to theatres and performing arts centres, Toronto's four major-league sports teams, and an array of cultural and family attractions. The area is also home to most of the nightclubs in Toronto. We are also located near to the St. Lawrence Market, named the world's top food market by National Geographic. Stop in for cheese from France, lobster from Nova Scotia and everything in between. Every weekend the market hosts a farmer's market and a fantastic and inexpensive antique market.
We are within walking distance of University of Toronto, Little Korea, Kensington Market, Little Italy, and about a 15 minute streetcar ride from the very trendy Ossington strip, Queen West, Trinity Bellwoods Park, and High Park. Check out the Canadian National Tower for a panoramic view of the city from the observation deck or the glass floor, if you dare. Grab a TORONTO CITYPASS for $65 approximately and gain access to 4 or 5 attractions. Saves a lot of money!
