Niagara

NIAGARA AT A GLANCE

Niagara is one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in Toronto. It is becoming a hot spot for those seeking high-end living in an area that fuses the feel of a close-knit community with the vibrancy of the downtown.

Niagara might be considered the most historically significant neighbourhood in Toronto. The historical roots were laid down in 1793, when it was part of military garrison (which still stands on Garrison Rd.) for the town of York. The bloody Battle of York took place in this very place during the War of 1812 and this pivotal battle secured the independence of Upper Canada from United States.  Today, Niagara neighbourhood is fuelled by the creativity and vibrancy of nearby West Queen West, King West Village and Liberty Village, the trendiness of the Fashion District and majestic romanticism of Lake Ontario. When you add in a walk score of 84 and a transit score of 99, Niagara is the place to be.

Describe A Perfect Day in Niagara 

The first and most important step to having a perfect day is to start your morning in the right place. This is the second time Dufflet bakery shows up in our neighbourhood overviews, because…well, it is a Toronto legend! No matter what you choose — and we recommend the blueberry-lemon cheesecake or marble espresso coffee cake — your happiness meter will be as full as your belly. Yes, it is that good. The lazy urban morning flows seamlessly into a relaxed art appreciation afternoon at Trinity-Bellwoods Park. Regular art installations, cultural festivals and lots of local artists who love to chat about their work wait for us on every visit. There are always activities available in the park to energize us: soccer, baseball, tennis, softball or even hockey. As for lunch, we absolutely love going to Terroni, one of the best places in Toronto to sample south Italian fare, to share a thin and crispy pizza. After lunch, we’ll head to Fort York National Historical Site to discover the military history that was a big part of Canadian freedom. After that, we will stroll to the Ricoh Coliseum to find out what events are going on there. Be sure to check your calendar, because if it is August or September, you should visit Canadian National Exhibition (CNE)! There are many things to discover, such as farm animals, butter sculptures, live shows, and a large carnival midway with rides, games and food, which makes it an annual family tradition. For the evening program, we choose between two options: either we would like to step back in time to the age of chivalry and witness epic battles of steel and steed at Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament, or we’ll cheer on the Toronto Marlies at the Enercare Centre. Both options are fun and we can’t really say which is better, so you should try both and tell us what you think!
