From former industrial land to a flourishing residential neighbourhood, Dovercourt Village has grown into a popular area for creatives, young families, and working professionals.
This community is close to both Dufferin Grove and Christie Pits Parks, with TTC service offered up at your doorstep.
THE REAL ESTATE
Most of Dovercourt Village’s real estate was established between 1900 and 1930. These Edwardian style homes are dotted throughout the area, many now converted into multi-unit apartments. There are plenty of fully detached single family homes, as well as semis with narrow lots and well cared-for gardens. Dovercourt Village real estate tends to attract young families looking to lay down some roots, while new condo developments are garnering interest from first-time buyers who want an easy commute to the downtown core.
WHERE TO RELAX
Looking for a quiet space to sit back and enjoy the day? Head to Dovercourt Park in the heart of the neighbourhood. This space is home to Dovercourt Boys and Girls Club, as well as six acres of open space which includes a children’s playground, tennis courts, a wading pool, baseball diamond, and winter ice rinks.
WHERE TO EAT
Living in Dovercourt Village gives you an advantageous location between some of the West End’s best dining options. The neighbourhood’s mix of cultures offers up everything from La Bella Managua’s traditional Nicaraguan plates to southern-inspired vegan dishes at The Hogtown Vegan.
WHERE TO SHOP
Located within walking distance to Dovercourt Village, Dufferin Mall is an easy go-to for everyday amenities. If you’re looking for a unique gift, or have some time to browse around, head to Arts Market on College Street. This creative hub features vintage and handmade products from local independent artists.
