Stroll down Mount Pleasant Road or Bayview Avenue and pop into the many stores, from Cumbrae’s Butchers to Mastermind Toys to the Jacaranda Tree & Co. design store.
A few of our favourite local spots include Lemongrass for Asian-fusion dishes, Boland’s Open Kitchen on Mount Pleasant Road, and Positano for Amalfi-inspired cuisine. You can also grab a drink from a number of the pubs and bars, including Belsize Public House, Granite Brewery, and McSorley’s Wonderful Saloon & Grill.
Highly-rated schools in Davisville include Maurice Cody Junior Public School, an extremely well-respected institution that serves students from Kindergarten through Grade 5. The school consistently scores well on testing and has an incredible new turf field.
Parks & Recreation
Davisville has a number of parks, parkettes, and an outdoor winter skating rink. One of the most popular spots, June Rowlands Park, has something for everyone: tennis courts, baseball diamonds, play structures for children of all ages, and wonderful green space for summer picnics.
Frequent bus service to and from Davisville Station can get you all around the area with relative ease. Residents are a short drive to the Bayview Extension, which can get you onto the Don Valley Parkway or straight downtown in no time. The Eglinton Crosstown will be completed in the coming years, connecting the neighbourhood to the rest of the city even faster.
Davisville has a mix of houses built in the early half of the 20th century, as well as newer condominium buildings, apartments, and offices. The mix of new and old buildings throughout the neighbourhood creates an eclectic impression that keeps it feeling vital.
