Bloor West Village, Toronto Real Estate
Bloor West Village is located between two neighbourhoods. To the north is Runnymede, a former streetcar suburb and to the south is Swansea, a former village dating to the 19th century. Bloor West Village is also considered the name of the immediate vicinity of Bloor Street.
Bloor West Village homes are all fairly similar in size and style having been built up in the early 20th century . Manyo of these homes feature decorative oak accents, hardwood flooring, fireplaces, and large front porches that are provided with shade and some privacy by the large Oak and Maple trees that line the streets of this neighbourhood.
Parks and Recreation
The Village is very close to High Park - the city's largest and most popular park, a spectacular 400 acres with picnic areas, gardens, animal paddocks, a restaurant, an outdoor amphitheatre, sports facilities, a trackless train, an adventure playground and Grenadier Pond.
