Life In Corktown
Being one of the more affordable, yet still downtown Toronto neighbourhoods, real estate opportunities in Corktown are attracting many young professionals who seek convenient access to Toronto’s business and entertainment districts. Many of this area’s commercial buildings have been converted to live-in work studios, condo lofts, and professional buildings in an effort to completely revamp this neighbourhood. Corktown is bounded by Eastern Avenue to the south, St. Lawrence, King, and Lower streets to the east, Queen Street to the north, and Parliament Street to the west.
Schools: Inglenook Community Public School and St. Paul Catholic Elementary School are two of the best schools in Corktown.
Restaurants: Try the tasting menu at George, the apple cake at Mystic Muffin, the perfect espresso at Fahrenheit Coffee, or savoury German sandwiches at Schnitzel Queen.
Recreation: Despite a limited amount of shopping in the immediate neighbourhood, residents of Corktown are within walking distance to the famous St. Lawrence Market. The St. Lawrence Community Center offers facilities such as squash courts, swimming pool, gymnasium, piano room, weight room and game room. Those who enjoy more of a cardio workout can use the running track and cardio training room at the John Innes Community Recreation Centre. In addition, the Sackville playground is ideal for an afternoon of fun for families.
