Rosedale is an upscale, mature, family-friendly neighbourhood originally designed to take advantage of the natural ravine landscape to create an island of calm close to the heart of the city. Designed at the turn of the century with wide, tree-lined streets and larger lots, many of the stately original homes were built before 1930 in the English Cottage, Georgian and Tudor styles of the times, now mixed with newer custom homes.
The neighbourhood is perfect for nature enthusiasts — winding ravine paths take residents to the famous Evergreen Brick Works and refurbished Lower Don Trail, and the tranquil winding paths of Mount Pleasant Cemetery connect residents to the Beltline Trail.
The neighbourhood has some of Toronto’s best public and private schools and family-friendly destinations. Moorevale Park has five outdoor tennis courts, a lawn bowling green, wading pool, playground, sports field and a baseball diamond.
Despite being tucked away, Rosedale is one of Toronto’s most conveniently located neighbourhoods, with easy access to transit, a quick downtown commute via the Bayview Avenue Extension, and easy access to the Don Valley Parkway.
