Superior Location of the Beach!
You can't get any better than this location! Just steps to The Beach and the Boardwalk you will love all this fantastic location has to offer just in time for summer! The Beach looks and feels more like a lakeside resort town, than a big city neighbourhood. In the summertime, thousands of Torontonians and tourists flock to The Beach to walk on The Boardwalk, exercise along the Martin Goodman Trail, relax by the water, or shop and dine at the colourful stores and restaurants along Queen Street.
The Beach has the greatest variety of architectural house styles of any Toronto neighbourhood accentuated by the tree-lined streets that wind their way down to the lake.
The social centre of The Beach neighbourhood is Kew Gardens, which hosts many annual events including a Christmas tree and Menorah lighting festival, the Jazz festival & an Arts and Crafts show.
A shopper's delight! Queen Street is the most commercial of The Beach shopping districts. Many of these stores & restaurants have a beach motif that caters to the tourist trade. The shops on Kingston Road also have a beach flavour, attracting more of the local clientele.
The Beaches' most famous landmark is The Boardwalk. The Boardwalk is skirted by the Martin Goodman Trail which spans the city's waterfront from The Beach to the Humber River.
Great school district is a popular drawing card for many families! Kew Beach Jr P.S., Bowmore Road Jr & Sr P.S., Monarch Park Collegiate & Danforth Collegiate & Technical Institute as well as many private, alternative and Catholic Schools nearby.
Plenty of local parks! Ashbridge's Bay Park is an awesome spot for family picnics & windsurfing if you so dare. A popular well known spot for beach volleyball! Glen Stewart Park off Queen Street has a picturesque ravine and nature trail. Donald Summerville Pool at the foot of Woodbine Avenue overlooks the lake and includes an Olympic size pool, a diving pool and a children's pool.
Kew Gardens has one of Toronto's most active tennis programs with 10 flood lit courts. This park also has a baseball diamond, an artificial ice rink, children's playground, wading pool & a concert bandstand. The Beach Branch of the Toronto Public Library is right next to Kew Gardens, off Queen Street.
Well served by public transit system! There are bus or streetcar routes along Queen Street, Kingston Road, Gerrard Street, Victoria Park Avenue, Main Street, and Woodbine Avenue. All these surface routes connect to Toronto's rapid transit lines and subway stations.
Motorists have the convenience of being in and out of the city in mere minutes via the Don Valley Expressway, the Gardiner Expressway, Lake Shore Boulevard.
