The vibrant neighbourhood of Roncesvalles Village is an amazing mix of old world and gentrification. Family-friendly and blessed with excellent transportation routes and a varied commercial shopping district, this area also boasts ample parkland and recreational opportunities, all within walking distance.
At the heart of this neighbourhood is Roncesvalles Avenue, with its incredibly interesting mix of funky restaurants and gourmet stores rubbing elbows with ethnic delicatessens and family businesses.
