      Prime Seaton Village~Annex Location!

      An amazing family friendly tree-filled neighbourhood that is centrally located, south of Dupont St. and east of Christie St. Seaton Village has managed to maintain the feel of a small town village, yet being close to all major amenities the city has to offer.

      Imagine being able to walk to the Varsity Cinema or strolling back late from Little Italy or the Ossington Strip. U of T, the JCC, and all the Annex has to offer is only a few blocks away.

      One truly amazing thing about living on Olive Avenue is the annual street party now celebrating their 35th year where neighbours get together for pot luck, watch their kids perform and just hang out and have a good time.

      Residents love their local jewel -- Vermont Square! This lush city park is lined with trees, a children's playground and a wading pool. The St. Albans Boys' and Girls' Club offers a myriad of programs for families and children including preschool programs, a summer camp, games room, computer room, weight room, gymnasium, recreational programs plus an annual pumpkin patch.

      Bonus - Get VIP courtside tickets every year along the Santa Clause parade routes usually closed off unless you are a local resident.

      Popular Christie Pits Park, located at the corner of Bloor and Christie Streets, is one of Toronto's busiest parks. Its facilities include baseball diamonds, an artificial ice rink, tobogganing, children's playground, free outdoor pool and wading pool.

The Bloor Street shopping area east of Bathurst Street is brimming with trendy restaurants, cafes and bars, attracting a diverse mix of people from all over the city.

      The Bathurst Street shopping area has more of a quieter, residential tone than Bloor Street. It includes small cafes, professional offices and stores that are geared towards the local home-owners.

      The Dupont and Christie intersection is anchored by a large Loblaw's and a Sobey's just 2 blocks west. Also find Fiesta Farms on Christie, a Farmers Market on Bloor and the famous Wychwood barns north of Davenport.
