Dovercourt Park

DOVERCOURT PARK AT A GLANCE

Dovercourt Park is residential community with a stunning park in the middle.  With prices among the most affordable in downtown Toronto, it truly is a hidden gem.

The Dovercourt Park was founded in the 1870s and was called The Village of Dovercourt. Its residents were originally poor immigrants from England and later on in 1900s from Portugal, resulting in the houses without any particular architectural style. Historically, the residents of Dovercourt Park were mostly low to moderate income families, but for the last ten years neighbourhood has been in transition and is significantly evolving.  A stunning park and a subway line nearby create an urban symphony that makes Dovercourt Park a special place to live and work. With the walk score of 88 and the transit score of 93, Dovercourt Park is 20th most walkable neighbourhood in Toronto.

Describe a Perfect Day in Dovercourt Park

Dovercourt Park is one of my absolute favourite places in Toronto to take my little cousin!  Our Saturday morning typically starts with well-deserved cartoons and breakfast, so we usually reach Dovercourt by noon. Once we arrive, we share a yummy picnic lunch in the park, followed by meeting new friends at Dovercourt Boys & Girls Club’s playground. By the way, the Boys & Girls Club is open year-round and offers a huge number of social and recreational programs for neighbourhood children.  As for me, I usually enjoy reading a good book outside the house; it doesn’t matter what you are reading — “Fahrenheit 451” by Bradbury or “The Lord of The Rings” by Tolkien — you can always hide out there until you are ready to return to the real world… or at least until the  parents of your cousin’s new buddies tell them it’s time to go home. Then it is time to walk down to Bloor Street, where the busy evening life starts. Art galleries, patios, vintage stores and indie coffee shops offer an eclectic mix in this beautiful neighbourhood. Most likely we will stroll to Courense Bakery and Pastry for a delightful, reasonably-priced Brazilian-style dinner and dessert.

One Thing Someone Looking to Live in Dovercourt Park Should Know?

This special neighbourhood is created for families with children: an excellent school and an after-school activities area right in the middle of the park… and it’s all just a few steps away from Bloor Street!
