Parks & Recreation
The much-loved Oriole Park includes the Neshama Playground, which has a progressive layout designed to accommodate children with disabilities as well as all children in the greater community. Kids can play in the splash pad and wading pool in the summer, while the baseball diamond, tennis court, open space, and picnic sites offer even more opportunity for family fun.
Residents have easy access to both Eglinton Subway Station and Davisville Subway Station. The Beltline Trail is easily accessible from the north end of Oriole Park and offers over nine kilometres of walking and cycling paths. The neighbourhood’s wide streets, spacious sidewalks, and low traffic levels make it a great area for kids to ride bikes or scooters.
Most homes in this neighbourhood have been built in the Tudor, Georgian, and English cottage styles. During the area’s development, the developers included zoning restrictions which prevented semi-detached homes from being built and mandated that stucco could only cover a portion of the home. These guidelines have given the community its distinct feel that attracts families and professionals.
