Mount Pleasant West
Mount Pleasant West is a residential neighbourhood bordered by busy commercial strips lined with artisanal bakeries, gastropubs, and trendy Asian restaurants. Independent shops sell gifts and secondhand clothing, while the Yonge Eglinton Centre mall houses fashion chains. For green spaces, June Rowlands Park has a playground and splash pad, and large Mount Pleasant Cemetery lies just south of the area.
This area is more relaxed than downtown, but still extremely walkable to transit, stores, and restaurants. It was named after Toronto’s famous Mount Pleasant Cemetery, where locals and visitors come to explore the quiet beauty of the grounds. Other parks in the area offer residents outdoor space for taking a walk or riding a bike. Families with children are drawn to the parks, but also to the many schools in the district. Mount Pleasant West is bordered by Yonge Street to the west, Mount Pleasant Road to the east, Keewatin Avenue to the north, and the cemetery to the south. The Yonge and Eglinton intersection is also within the area, so there are many shopping and dining options nearby.
While Mount Pleasant real estate is popular with many people, the majority of your neighbours here will be between age 20-54. The proximity to downtown is attractive to working age residents, and the peaceful streets appeal to many people, including families with kids.
