Riverdale is the Toronto neighbourhood to find equilibrium and a sense of place. It's where morning Tai Chi, modern dance performances, shinny hockey and baseball all happen in the same park. Its where you might saunter up to Greektown to pickup Big Carrot's healthy-living products before nipping into a pub to watch Euro soccer. It's where schools get top marks in EQAO test performance and in eco consciousness. And no, listening to CBC and driving a Prius are not prerequisites for living here.
- Graceful hills, charming streets, perennial gardens, and a lush tree canopy give Riverdale a glorious setting.
- It's a diverse, socially-minded, proud, and strong community
- One of the most walkable, transit accessible, dog- bike- and child-friendly neighbourhoods in Toronto
- Withrow Park, which serves as a year-round community hub for all types of recreation, sports, arts, and play. And there's even more outdoor fun at Riverdale Park.
- The vibrant Greektown is around the corner, with its wide selection of cosmopolitan dining, boutiques, and health-promoting services.
Riverdale has a gorgeous assemblage of mostly older homes laden with character, mixed with a handful of very tastefully built newer homes. Predominant are two and three storey row, semi, and detached homes dating from the late 1800s to 1930s, many of which still proudly display their Victorian, Edwardian, and Craftsman architectural details.
