Developed in the 1980s, Rathwood is known as a quiet family area and has become a great alternative to those looking for a little more “bang for your buck” than you would get in the neighboring Etobicoke.
Interest in Rathwood has really picked up steam over the past few years and has become known as a family neighbourhood. Large homes on wide lots, situated on tree-lined streets interspersed with parks and greenspace – sounds picturesque, doesn’t it? Add in the location as siding on the more expensive Etobicoke, and the highly ranked Public and Catholic schools, and you can see why Rathwood has become a family favorite.
The main source of transit throughout the neighbourhood is the MiWay bus, but Dixie Go isn’t too far away for a quick commute into the downtown core. Alternatively the Bloor subway stations are a short drive from the more easterly parts of the area.
The western part of the neighbourhood is adjacent to Square One, making shopping or going out for dinner a breeze. Rathwood also has one of its own shopping centers if you’re looking for something a little less busy: Rockwood Mall, in addition to smaller complexes throughout the community.
