The vibrant, multicultural community sits in close proximity to some of Toronto’s most desirable neighbourhoods, and is itself becoming one of the most attractive areas to live in, especially for families.
Community events like Christie Pits Film Festival, a summer-long series of outdoor movie screenings held at the park, brings the neighbourhood together and attracts attendees from across the city.
Local TTC service includes Christie and Ossington subway stations, the Bathurst streetcar and Ossington bus.
THE REAL ESTATE
Christie Pits real estate includes single-family homes, townhouses, and semi-detached homes from the early 1900s. Many of the larger homes are now subdivided into rental apartments, while others have been renovated to more modern standards to reflect the changing demographic of the neighbourhood.
WHERE TO RELAX
Christie Pits Park is in the heart of the neighbourhood, surrounded by Christie Pits real estate and the Bloor Street West shopping strip. This park has a pool, skating rink, baseball diamonds, basketball courts, children’s playground and wading pool, two communal pizza/bread ovens, and plenty of open space to relax.
WHERE TO EAT
Grab a slice of pizza from Apiecalypse Now, a local vegan pizzeria and snack bar located across the street from Christie Pits Park. Choose from Toronto-themed flavours like the Toronto Island, or get a cone of their smooth soft-serve vegan ice cream to cool off on a summer’s day. Prefer a more carnivorous option? Grab a bowl of pork bone stew from one of the many Koreatown restaurants or a burrito from Tacos El Asador right across from the park.
WHERE TO SHOP
Fiesta Farms is the neighbourhood pick for the best grocery store. This shop offers much more than just fresh and organic produce. Their unique selection of alternative goods, locally made products, and a lush garden centre full of flowers, herbs, vegetables, and gardening supplies makes this a one-stop-shop for local’s everyday essentials.
