Trinity-Bellwoods is truly one of Toronto’s great neighbourhoods. Literally built around a park, it’s close to downtown and even closer to ultra-cool West Queen West. Trinity Bellwoods Park and a number of great schools in the area make this neighbourhood equally attractive for families. Trinity-Bellwoods is one of the most sought after neighbourhoods in Toronto for a number of good reasons!
Trinity-Bellwoods is located just northwest of downtown Toronto. It is bordered by Bathurst Street to the east, Dundas Street to the north, Ossington Avenue to the west, and Queen Street to the south. Queen Street is home to trendy shops, restaurants, bars and everything from yoga classes to pet supply stores. Ossington is another great destination for fun, food and fashion, while Dundas Street is home to Toronto’s famous Little Portugal, and a bakery on virtually every corner, as well as unique restaurants and culture you won’t find anywhere else.
Getting around couldn’t be easier when you’re in Trinity-Bellwoods. The iconic Queen Streetcar heads right downtown and to neighbourhoods farther east, and all the way to the border with Mississauga westward. Best of all, service is provided 24 hours a day! There is a huge network of signed bike routes throughout the neighbourhood, and it’s easy to get down to the lakefront to enjoy a nice long ride. The Gardiner Expressway is also a short drive away. One of the big pluses about Trinity-Bellwoods is that almost everything you could want in a neighbourhood is within walking distance!
