riverdale at a glance

Riverdale is characterized by two large recreational parks, Riverdale Park adjacent to the Don River and Withrow Park to the north east of Riverdale. Riverdale is also home to the Don Jail, which is at the corner of Broadview Avenue and Gerrard Street East. The area is known as a thriving residential neighbourhood represented by a strong arts community that cater to independent galleries on Queen St. to the large corporate film studios along the waterfront. There remains a strong working class element to the neighbourhood as well. The tree-lined side-streets are complemented by the various styles of Victorian and Georgian homes. Riverdale is sometimes split into North Riverdale (north of Gerrard) and South Riverdale (south of Gerrard). Well known areas within Riverdale include Riverside, formerly Queen-Broadview Village, a funky patio-lined pocket around Queen Street and Broadview Avenue. As well, Toronto's second largest Chinatown, also known as Chinatown East rests in the Broadview & Gerrard area.
