Thank goodness for green space! As March draws to a close, we’re all feeling antsy to see new grow poking up through the remaining snow; another month and Toronto’s parks and parkettes will be blossoming with life!!
The integration of the natural world into our urban landscape is perhaps where Toronto shines brightest as a city; the extensive network of green spaces is truly remarkable, improving quality of life for all Torontonians! Preserved and cultivated across the city, these treasured slices of fresh growth and vegetation provide a multitude of invaluable mental, physical, and social health benefits for we urban dwellers! From outdoor recreation and community congregation to cleaning the air and absorbing stormwater run-off, parks are essential pieces of a functioning, healthy city.
We’ve raved about many of Toronto’s lesser known green spaces, including Rennie Park, Sorauren Park, East Lynn Park, and Monarch Park! But today we’re talking about Withrow Park, where many streets culminate in the centre of Prime Riverdale! Have you been?
It sits in the heart of Riverdale – which is exactly what this beautiful space represents to the surrounding community.
Withrow Park is one of downtown’s more sizeable parks, comprising 8 hectares. Beyond the lush greenery, benches, picnic tables and drinking fountains, the park’s attractions include two ball diamonds, a multipurpose sports field, two outdoor tennis courts, a volleyball court, a dog off-leash area, a wading pool and a children’s playground.
W adore the Withrow Farmer’s Market that runs from June to October!
And in the winter, an outdoor ice rink!
725 Logan Ave,
Whether you have an hour or an afternoon, spending time in your neighbourhood park – or exploring new parks – is a great way to get some fresh air, soak up some much-needed Vitamin D, and even engage with your community.
For the lucky new owner of this refreshed semi-detached 4bed, 3.5 family home on Hampton Avenue in Riverdale it will be a reality!
We called it: Hip, Hip, Hooray for 140 Hampton Avenue In Riverdale – now SOLD!!
Check out another listing we sold just a couple minute’s walk from Withrow Park!
Substantially renovated from top to bottom in 2011, the comprehensive retrofit designed by Coz Design introduced a space plan that maximizes efficiency, a selection of materials that are of a high standard, and an aesthetic that is both contemporary and timeless. The result is a loft that is warm, welcoming and visually cohesive!
This place is special – and we’re so grateful to have SOLD it to an excited new owner! A Sun-Kissed Contemporary Loft In Riverdale’s Printers Row
Here another nearby loft that we SOLD – also by Bob Mitchell! Heavenly Sanctuary In A Converted Riverdale Church, is just a hop, skip and a jump away from the park too!
