Dorset Park

Dorset Park NEIGHBOURHOOD GUIDE

25 Homes for sale | 5 Homes for rent

Description

Dorset Park is a culturally-diverse Scarborough neighbourhood popular with newcomers to Canada. The area’s been attracting young families over the last decade who are buying and fixing up the older homes for sale in Scarborough.

The periphery of Dorset Park is largely industrial. Companies like Kraft Foods and Laura Secord have their manufacturing facilities here. The north is bounded by Highway 401. Some of the interior, residential pockets are however quiet with good-sized family properties. People care for their homes and yards here and there’s a kind of retro-feel to many of the streets lined with older bungalows. It feels like a community your grandparents would have lived in. And in an age where most of the City’s post-war bungalow are being torn down to make way for new build mini mansions, there’s something comforting about that.

Best For

Young families looking for moderately-priced houses for sale in Scarborough near the highway for an easy commute to Toronto.

Why We Love Dorset Park

It’s a Welcoming Community

The area has a stigma for not being as community-oriented as others in Scarborough but talk to residents and you’re sure to hear about how welcoming and inclusive the community is. This is a neighbourhood where people get to know their neighbours and help each other out. There’s a Newcomer Centre in Dorset Park for one-on-one settlement coaching, citizenship prep tests, English conversation clubs and more. Plus, there’s a website for Dorset Park residents to keep up to date on neighbourhood news, events and politics.
