The centre of this historic area is its popular outdoor market, which has become a hot spot for tourists and a major shopping destination reflecting the diverse cultural mix of this colourful neighbourhood. Toronto’s only year-round outdoor market is a day-long adventure where merchants sell their goods right out on the sidewalks, dining abounds, and the array of fresh & prepared foods for sale evokes an old world feel. Peripheral shopping includes nearby Chinatown on Spadina, Portugal Village on Dundas Street West, and the trendy shops and along Queen West which provide residents with an eclectic mix of antique shops, art galleries, theatres, entertainment, bookstores, vintage fashion stores, cafes, natural food markets and restaurants.
The local park and meeting place for Kensington residents is Bellevue Square, conveniently located just steps from the building. To the immediate south of this park is Alexandra Park, with its outdoor pool and child care centre; to the south east, Grange Park directly behind the AGO offers a wading pool, playground, and numerous trees & walkways. Cecil Street Community Centre at Spadina & College has a large hall that is used for theatre productions, sports, games, parties & weddings. The Shaw College Public Library offers reading material in a number of languages that reflect the area’s diversity.
With its proximity to the hip Little Italy, Trinity Bellwoods & Queen West areas, there is also very easy access to Toronto’s business and financial districts – minutes by car, while the frequent Bathurst and Spadina streetcars connect to the Bloor and Yonge lines in minutes. Desirable destinations such as the Eaton Centre, Air Canada Centre, the Art Gallery of Ontario and the shaded University of Toronto campus buildings are also nearby, and the Gardiner and Lake Shore Boulevard are a short drive away.
