Additional Information:
Centred around Roncesvalles Avenue, it falls between King and Queen Streets to the south, Dundas Street West to the north. Originally known as 'Howard Park', most of this area was formerly within the boundaries of Parkdale and Brockton villages and was annexed into Toronto in the 1880s.

Real Estate
Roncesvalles Village is a culturally diverse, active community. Being an older community means the streets are lined with mature trees and the Edwardian and Victorian homes, situated on deep lots are more affordable than they would be in other high profile communities.

Culturally, the area is known as the centre of the Polish community in Toronto, with prominent Polish institutions, businesses and St Casimir's Catholic Church located on Roncesvalles Avenue. The businesses along Roncesvalles have formed the Roncesvalles Village Business Improvement Area and hold an annual Polish Festival. It is also within walking distance of Toronto's waterfront parks, the Western Beaches and Boardwalk.
