Families on tight budgets looking for houses for sale in North York or apartments for rent in a culturally-diverse neighbourhood with green space.
Maple Leaf is a neighbourhood in North York made up of two parts–the area to the west of Culford Road is known as Rustic which is a largely residential neighbourhood with high Italian, Jamaican and Ghanaian populations and the area to the east called North Park.
Maple Leaf Park and Rustic Park are the centres of recreational activity for many families who live in the Rustic community and the namesake North Park and the Queen’s Greenbelt on the North Park side offers more natural spaces. Falstaff Community Centre offers free programs. And residents have a beloved go-to spot for sweet treats on Rustic Road: The Rustic Bakery, lauded by locals as one of Toronto’s best bakeries, famous for its red velvet cupcakes.
Why We Love Maple Leaf
Its Ravine Rocks
The Black Creek ravine snakes through the Rustic-Maple Leaf neighbourhood and provides plenty of green space. The trail makes a great day out; take it all the way north past Downsview into York University Heights where there are picnic tables and facilities at the south end of Northwood Park for a mid-walk rest-stop.
