Toronto/RosedaleToronto : Rosedale
Rosedale is in Toronto. This neighbourhood is generally considered to be among the wealthiest in Canada and its narrow, tree-filled streets are lined with beautiful, turn-of-the-century mansions, with large front gardens. The generally accepted boundaries are: The CP railways tracks to the north, Rosedale Ravine to the south, the Don Valley to the east and Yonge Street to the west. While it serves as the neighbourhood's western boundary, Yonge Street also serves as the area's main street, filled with expensive restaurants and shops, and buzzing with nightlife.
By public transitEdit
The neighbourhood is served by the aptly-named Rosedale subway station on the Yonge line, at the corner of Yonge Street and Crescent Road; this station is well suited to access the Yonge Street section of Rosedale, as well as the western section of the residential part. The Castle Frank station on the Bloor-Danforth line is located in the south-east corner of the neighbourhood, near the Don Valley and the Summerhill station on the Yonge line is located immediately north of the north-west corner of the neighbourhood. Bus 82 runs from the Rosedale subway station, through the neightbourhood and terminates immediately north of Rosedale, bus 75 terminates in the eastern end of Rosedale after serving Sherbourne Street through downtown.
- Rosedale Valley is an enormous green space separating Rosedale from the Yorkville neighbourhood in downtown Toronto. The view from the north side of the valley is absolutely breathtaking, with skyscrapers giving way to a very steep, tree-filled slope. The best view is from the bridge that carries Sherbourne Street across the valley. It is also a pleasant place to stroll during the day, a green oasis just north of the hustle and bustle of downtown, however, like the rest of the ravines in the city, it is extremely unsafe at night.
- Ramsden Park is a relatively large, urban park, on the western edge of the neighbourhood, with its entrance right on the west side of Yonge Street. In summer this is a very nice place to have a picnic and in winter there is a large skating rink, there are also tennis courts.
