Why We Love It Here
Little Portugal has a fun, urban feel while still appealing to many young families. This neighbourhood appeals to many, including young couples, young families, seniors, and especially those who enjoy an urban lifestyle. There are beautiful Victorian style homes within the Little Portugal real estate, which the residents decorate with a fun, urban flare. It is still fairly affordable for a downtown neighbourhood, being just West of Little Italy.
What To Do & See
This neighbourhood is steps away from Trinity Bellwoods Park, where there’s plenty of open space, tennis courts, a dog park, and a children’s playground. There are also a ton of great restaurants to try along Queen Street West, and, because you’re in Little Portugal, you should also try one of the bakeries along Dundas Street. Little Portugal is very walkable, with plenty of public transportation nearby with streetcars along Dundas, Queen, College, as well as the Bloor subway not too far North.
The Local Claim to Fame
One of the city’s most popular parks, Trinity Bellwoods, is nearby and is really fun to go to on a nice summer day, with lots of people picnicking and playing games. There are many great shops and restaurants along Dundas Street West and along Ossington Avenue, just steps away from Little Portugal real estate.
