Runnymede is a family-oriented neighbourhood, whose boundaries include Dundas Street West to the north, Runnymede Road to the east, Jane Street to the west and Annette Street to the south, is comprised of several elementary and secondary schools, convenient access to shopping and transportation. It is nestled between some of Toronto’s more affluent neighbourhoods, including Baby Point and High Park.
Houses in the neighbourhood tend to be two-story brick houses, however renovations are becoming more and more popular and many of the traditional homes are being torn down to create larger, more modern homes. The tree-lined streets in this area, which was annexed by the city of Toronto in 1909 make this a popular residential neighbourhood. Much of its development was originally due to the creation of a streetcar line along Bloor Street, which the TTC later replaced by the Bloor-Danforth subway line, built in the 1960s.
Bloor West Village is situated just west of High Park and accessible by subway stations, Jane and Runnymede. The area has an Eastern European heritage and boasts a long list of cafes, restaurants and shops along Bloor Street West from Glendowynne Road west to Jane Street.
