About Greenwood Coxwell
Welcome to Toronto’s Greenwood Coxwell neighbourhood!
Travel to the far east side of Leslieville along Queen, Dundas or Gerrard, along the Danforth, past the heart of Greektown, and you’ll find yourself in the area known as Greenwood-Coxwell. Here, you can visit Bricktown and India Bizaar, Monarch Park, and parts of the Danforth and Leslieville… all within its boundaries. Outsiders might see it as an area with an identity crisis, but those who live here see themselves in a neighbourhood that is filled with a diverse, welcoming community.
This area is not as well known as some East End ‘hoods, but Greenwood Coxwell over the years has seen a shift from the place people stop on their way to somewhere else, to a destination for food, beer, art, shopping and more. Affordable commercial rent has drawn fresh new businesses to the area and has given established west end favourites the perfect spot to open on the east side – hello Glory Hole Donuts!
Green space abounds with the massive Greenwood park sitting just outside the boundaries, Monarch Park north of the tracks between Gerrard and Danforth and Jonathon Ashbridge’s just North of the Lakeshore. Here, you’ll find splash pads, pools, tennis courts, baseball diamonds, and lots of room to run. There are also a number of smaller community playgrounds, schoolyards and dog parks making the area perfect for those starting a family or moving to the area with children.
At night, people gather at local breweries, restaurants like Lake Inez, Bodega Henriette and the Wren, and local favourites like Eulalie’s Corner Store and Blondies Pizza. Here, you’ll also find the best Indian and Ethiopian food in the city. And for lunch, you can’t beat Lazy Dazy Cafe and Maha’s (if you can get a table – be prepared to line up).
On a typical weekday, you’ll see the cafe’s chocked full of people with their laptops. This area has a large number of professionals, creative people and entrepreneurs that work from home, or wherever they can find power and wi-fi. A number of farmer’s markets take place throughout the week and on weekends. And in the summer, there are countless family-friendly outdoor events and festivals, along with art markets and craft beer events.
