The Pocket NEIGHBOURHOOD GUIDE
2 Homes for sale | 1 Homes for rent
Most Toronto homes for sale in the micro neighbourhood known as The Pocket are found on quiet, tree-lined cul-de-sacs with only light street traffic due to the limited access points to these residential side streets (most streets can only be accessed via Jones). This makes the area a great neighbourhood for families and you’ll often see kids biking and playing in the dead-end streets and crescents.
The Pocket's detached and semi-detached houses are often larger and more character-filled than the homes west of Jones in neighbouring Blake-Jones.
Popular streets like Ravina Crescent which winds around the west side of Phin Avenue Parkette have seen property prices soar in recent years, similar to the real estate trends happening directly around Monarch Park in Greenwood-Coxwell. This is a little gem of pocket within The Pocket.

Why We Love The Pocket
It’s Got Team Spirit
The Pocket Community Association runs a number of neighbourhood events like films in Phin Park, pub nights, Halloween celebrations and an annual street party in late September that’s been going strong for over a decade. They also spearhead a number of projects in that area held near and dear to local residents such as The Pocket Tree Project.
There’s a Pride of Place
Local residents share much love for this popular neighbourhood. This is a place where neighbours help neighbours and residents take pride in their homes. Many of the older homes have been renovated and people tend to buy and stay, giving the area stability and a sense of community. It’s not unusual to see community block parties and street-wide yard sales and barbeques.
