Bedford Park is an upper-middle-class residential neighbourhood in the middle of North Toronto. Comprised primarily of stone and brick bungalows, Bedford Park differentiates itself from some of the surrounding neighbourhoods in that it was designed with the middle class, rather than the upper class, in mind.
Situated north of where Lawrence Avenue intersects Yonge Street, the neighbourhood’s side streets enjoy a quiet, peaceful atmosphere, this despite its proximity to an important commercial centre buzzing with activity. As a result, residents have ready access to a wide array of shops, services, recreation, entertainment, libraries, schools and a subway station while still being able to walk home in comparative quiet.
Many believe that the relative affordability of neighbourhood homes won’t last, as many original bungalows are now beginning to be replaced by newer, larger houses.
