Culture in The Kingsway
The Kingsway is a highly sought-after neighbourhood and arguably the premier neighbourhood in Toronto’s west end. Mature maple and oak trees line the streets and the Humber River flows along the easterly boundary, providing an idyllic backdrop for these majestic homes. The Kingsway Village on Bloor Street West provides the major shopping and pedestrian district for the area and the neighbourhood is celebrated every September with it’s annual Taste of the Kingsway festival.
