Toronto Homes for Sale
Rosedale is an affluent neighbourhood in Toronto which was formerly the estate of William Botsford Jarvis, and so named by his wife, granddaughter of William Dummer Powell, for the wild roses that grew there in abundance. It is located north of Downtown Toronto and is one of its oldest suburbs. Rosedale's boundaries consist of Moore Park to the north, Yonge Street to the west, Bloor Street to the south, and Bayview Avenue to the east. Rosedale is traversed by a network of ancient ravines, including the Vale of Avoca, Moore Park, Park Drive and Rosedale Valley ravines. The beautiful trails in these ravines are enjoyed by nature and fitness enthusiasts alike. Because of its proximity to such fantastic trails and greenery, this neighbourhood makes you feel like you are far away from the city, when in fact you are within just a few minutes from Toronto's major business, entertainment and shopping districts. Also located in this prestigious Toronto pocket are some of the city's finest amenities and community centres. Rosedale Park, located off Schofield Avenue, has eight tennis courts, a sports field, an artificial ice rink, and a wading pool. It is also home to the annual spring park party, Mayfair. The event typically consists of rides, games, flea market and other such carnival-type activities. The event is traditionally held on the first Saturday in May. Also in the area is Mooredale House, a community centre run by the Rosedale and Moore Park residents associations, which is located at 146 Crescent Road. The area has some of the best private, public and catholic schools in downtown Toronto.
