Trinity Bellwoods Neighbourhood

The area’s namesake, Trinity College was built in 1852 and sat on the site that is now popular Trinity Bellwoods Park. The grand entrance and oft-photographed entrance gates to the park (at Queen Street West and Strachan Avenue) were in fact the college’s original gates. The sprawling park is the focal point of the area, spanning the entire length of the neighbourhood and much-loved by its residents. Affordable Victorian homes, shopping, and other conveniences surround the park and offer a community-driven enclave in the heart of downtown Toronto, close to major transit routes.

Trinity Bellwoods Homes

Built between 1880 and 1905, small to medium size Victorian homes line the leafy avenues and bustling main streets of Trinity Bellwoods. Due to the sheer size of Trinity Bellwoods Park, many homes in the area either front or back on to the park, offering beautiful surroundings, even if the weekend action in the park can distract somewhat from nature. The neighbourhood’s larger homes can be found on Shaw Street, a tree-lined boulevard that is twice the width of the narrow avenues of downtown Toronto.

Trinity Bellwoods Real Estate Market

A recent influx of young families and professionals in this vibrant and growing community has seen quite a bit of restoration among the affordable (yet increasing in price) Victorian homes. A desirable purchase of artists, writers, journalists and tech professionals, modern townhome and condo construction is becoming more prevalent in the relatively bohemian neighbourhood of Trinity Bellwoods.

The arts and culture influence of Queen Street West’s galleries, antique shops, bookshops, restaurants, natural food markets and fashion boutiques provided a distinct characteristic to the Trinity Bellwoods area. Popular Ossington Avenue, which runs north south through the centre of the neighbourhood boasts the highest concentration of hip restaurants and bars in the city, catering to the area’s youthful demographic. Adding further cultural flavor, the Portugese shopping district on Dundas Street West (between Grace Street and Markham Street) includes a string of exotic specialty food shops and restaurants. Trinity Bellwoods Park is the jewel in the crown of the neighbourhood, with children’s playground, wading pool, sports field, baseball diamond, tennis courts and ice rink.
