About Keelesdale-Eglinton West
Welcome to Toronto’s Keelesdale-Eglinton West neighbourhood!
Living in Keelesdale is like living in a multicultural mecca, and residents from all different backgrounds bring a ton of culture, along with some amazing eats.
Restaurants range from your typical mom-and-pop pizzeria to ethnic Portugese/Italian/Spanish eateries. Shopping is limited in this neighbourhood to the smaller strip plazas on the main roads of Keelesdale- but that’s not why you come to this neighbourhood. Known for its proximity to Black Creek and Keelesdale Park; there is a ton of nature for a Toronto ‘hood–almost half of the neighborhood borders on parks or other greenspace.
Not traditionally known for its transit accessibility, Keelesdale will definitely be reaping in benefits from the completion of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT later this year (2022), as the community will have their own station stop. At the time of writing the Keelesdale Station is physically complete but is not yet ready to accept passengers. The Station is scheduled for completion at the end of 2022.
Schools in Keelesdale are currently slightly lower ranking based on EQAO averages, but these rankings can and do change all the time. As the community continues to gentrify, typically we see school scores improve.
