Cool Corso Italia Neighbourhood!
Lively and active the Corso-Italia neighbourhood is a close-knit community - it's all about the people! It is blessed by its authentic Italian heritage, Portuguese and growing Latin American presence. Heritage and national pride are evident throughout, especially during the World Cup and European soccer championships. The neighbourhood is bounded on the west by the CNR rail racks and to the east by Westmount Avenue.
Corso Italia centres around St. Clair Avenue West where the streets are marked by wrought iron lampposts with an authentic old-world feel. European flair on St. Clair includes Mom and Pop shops, boutiques, fresh markets, bakeries, pizzerias, plenty of gelato, quaint bistros and open air cafes. Nova Era bakery is at the end of the street and Tre Mari - just a block up. Nicknamed "Hollywood North" as there have been many major motion pictures filmed on location here.
The convenient St. Clair streetcar right-of-way extension allows for easy access to the St. Clair West subway station on the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line. Motorists are within fifteen minutes of downtown Toronto and are approximately ten minutes from the Allen Expressway which provides commuters with access to Toronto's major highways.
Amazing local recreation & parks! Earlscourt Park, located a block away at the bottom of the street on St. Clair Avenue West, is very popular. This 31 acre park includes a lit artificial turf soccer field, a lit multipurpose sports field and track, baseball diamond, four tennis courts, basketball court, volley ball court, a dog off-leash area, a children's playground, a wading pool and many walking paths.
The nearby Joseph J. Piccininni (JJP) Community Centre is the bustling heart of the 'hood - with modern gym and health club, swimming pool, and programming for all ages from pre-school to older adults.
Popular School district! FH Miller Jr. P.S., Carleton Village Jr. & Sr. Sports and Wellness Academy, Oakwood Collegiate, George Harvey Collegiate as well as many Catholic and private schools serving children and teens.
The Dufferin/St. Clair Library contains the largest collection of Italian books in the city's public library system. The St. Clair-Silverthorn Library reflects the area's diverse population by offering books in many languages, including Italian, Greek, and Punjabi.
Caledonia is a great route to access the future Eglinton LRT - as well as Home Depot & big box stores around the Castlefield Design District as well as south towards Bloor, the Junction and downtown.
