The Bloor/Gladstone Toronto Public Library branch is close by as is the hub of the neighbourhood: the very active Wallace-Emerson Community Centre. There are numerous programs in the outdoor pool, a new million-dollar renovated artificial ice rink, a weight room, fitness and wellness facilities, sports, arts and heritage programs and camps, plus a dirt park for bicycles (BMX park). Parents will appreciate the close proximity to the Campbell Avenue Playground and the very spacious Earlscourt Park, up at Davenport Rd -- a great opportunity to take in the Mediterranean flair of the Corso Italia on St. Clair.
