what makes us great

Founded in 1879, the Village of Parkdale was first established as a wealthy suburb of the city of Toronto. Its popularity with the rich at the time was because of it’s proximity to Lake Ontario’s shores and the large Victorian homes that peppered the neighborhood streets. In the 1950’s the community went through drastic changes with the building of the Gardiner Expressway, which cut off Parkdale to the lake, and the rearrangement of streets in the city’s attempt at urban development. During that period also saw an influx of working class immigrants move into the area. In the 1970’s Parkdale became a dumping ground for mental patients released from the Queen St. and Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospitals while many of the 19th century homes were turned into rooming houses. While Parkdale has become a destination neighborhood with a blossoming art scene, lively nightlife, and independent cafes and boutiques, it’s diversity and immigrant flavors still remain.
