Why We Love Cabbagetown
Okay, so the Park is technically in Riverdale (hence the name). However it shares its western border with Cabbagetown and local residents consider it one of their own.
You can more about the park’s many perks in our Riverdale neighbourhood guide.
If you’re someone who likes to get involved in the community – and even if you’re not – it’s nice to live in a neighbourhood where people care about the shared quality of life.
Now that’s a tough combination. Cabbagetown is home to many of Toronto’s elite and there has been a lot of private investment put towards restoring its historic properties, yet the vibe in this neighbourhood is cozy and down-to-earth. Kudos, Cabbagetown residents, for keeping it real.
Never a Dull Moment
There is so much happening here throughout the year including the annual Cabbagetown Fall Festival which includes a parade, walking tours, arts and crafts sale and children’s fun zone, along with tons of family programming offered throughout the year at both the Cabbagetown Community Arts Centre and the Cabbagetown Youth Centre.
