Additional Information:
Parkdale is a neighbourhood and former village in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, west of downtown. The neighbourhood is bounded on the west by Roncesvalles Avenue, on the north by Queen Street. It is bounded on the east by Dufferin Street from Queen Street south, and on the south by Lake Ontario. The original village incorporated an area north of Queen Street, east of Roncesvalles from Fermanagh east to the main rail lines. The village area was roughly one square kilometer in area.

Real Estate
While still working to recover its original glory, Parkdale still retains its well-preserved character homes from retirees or condos such as the new development in the former Canadian Tire building. The Parkdale has some of Toronto's most vibrant shopping districts, lovely tree lined streets (older communities all have larger, older shade-bearing trees), affordable Victorian homes, and stunning mansions (Queen Anne era, built between 1875 and 1895) from the time when Parkdale was Toronto's wealthiest community.

Shopping
The main commercial shopping area in Parkdale has historically been on Queen Street. This vibrant, creative shopping district seems to be in a state of perpetual activity; it includes an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants, many cafes, chic bars, boutiques and galleries. The liveliest stretch of Queen West, including the Gladstone Hotel, has some of the best archiecture west of the Annex.

Community Centers
The Roncesvalles Village shopping district, north of Queen Street, is the cultural centre of Toronto's Polish community. There are many outstanding food markets, delis, and restaurants along this route.

Four community centres serve the residents of this neighbourhood:

Holy Family Community Centre at 141 Close Avenue
