Hello High Park-Swansea


High Park is one of the most beloved neighbourhoods in Toronto and not only because of the park itself, which is a major factor, but because of its charm, shopping, beautiful streets and proximity to downtown.

Once known primarily as the center of the city’s Polish community, Roncesvalles is now home to a more diverse range of residents enjoying the eclectic community of restaurants, cafes, and shops along its namesake street.

From Bloor West Village to Swansea Village, it has a unique vibe, and the beauty of High Park makes it even better. The whole area manifests a laid- back quality that draws everyone into its web. With loads of cafes and green space, you can easily lose a whole day people watching. But the park remains central to this neighbourhood, drawing the community together with the blooming of the cherry blossoms in the spring, Shakespeare in the park in the summer, and the charm of the High Park Zoo.

If you fancy a bit of shopping, Bloor Street has a multitude of boutiques, bakeries and food markets, or you can pop over to the amazing restaurants along?Roncesvalles?and enjoy the waterfront access in?Parkdale.

High Park is known as a great place to raise children with several top elementary and high schools in the neighbourhood.

The neighbourhood has primarily been known for two and three-storey detached homes on good sized lots. But in recent years, the neighbourhood has undergone substantial development with several new condominiums.

High Park's distinctive brick homes feature a variety of architectural details that vary from house to house, such as leaded and stained-glass windows, lush wood trims, French doors, hardwood floors and fireplaces. A selection of condo buildings along Quebec Avenue, north of Bloor Street, include balconies, some of which feature south views that overlook High Park and Lake Ontario.

Living in a High Park means you will enjoy great transit convenience, with the subway along Bloor, giving you easy access to anywhere in the city. It is also very convenient to the major highways such as the Gardiner and Lake Shore Blvd.

The housing prices here are considered “high” relative to most of the city with the average detached home approximately $1,639,475 (December 2017) and the average condo is approximately $ 512,000 (December 2017).
