About the Neighbourhood
One of Toronto’s most desirable neighbourhood pockets, the Beach Triangle sits where Queen East, Kingston Road and Woodbine Avenue intersect. Once part of Toronto’s cottage country, the neighbourhood slowly morphed into a city area as the homes offered an opportunity for locals looking for property in this hotspot. Today, the community showcases tree-lined streets uniquely configured within the triangle, quaint homes with lovely front yards, and little parkettes between the road and homes. These elegantly placed green areas and charming homes make this area utterly unique to Toronto’s east end.
The parkettes found within the triangle and nearby parks such as Jeff Sloan Playground make it the perfect community for families and dog owners. Popular east end parks include Orchard Park, Woodbine Park and of course the beachfront area, which is a 10-minute walk away. Woodbine Park is a vibrant cultural centre and is home to several festivals throughout the year. For services, there’s no need to go much further west than Leslieville or east to the Beaches where you’ll find gyms, coffee shops, boutiques, and restaurants almost at your doorstep.
There’s no denying the convenience of the Beach Triangle where residents can hop on the Queen streetcar or ride the bus north to Woodbine subway station on the Bloor-Danforth line. It’s a short 15-minute drive or 20-minute bike ride to the financial core, and the DVP can easily be reached within a few minutes as well.
The sense of community in the Triangle is incredibly special. Neighbours feel comfortable leaving toys out in Jeff Sloan Park. There is an annual Beach Triangle Street Fest every June, as well as numerous farmers markets that surround this cherished enclave.
