Welcome to Bloor West Village
Bloor West Village (or “BWV” as it’s known with locals) is often regarded as one of the city’s friendliest neighbourhoods. This charming stretch of Bloor is perfect for those who like their ‘hood with a huge scoop of civic pride!
What to Do
Start by walking down Bloor! The first thing you’re going to notice is the collection of shops, boutiques, cafes, and more lining the street. Grab a treat at the Hot Oven Bakery, a flat white at Lit Espresso Bar, and take a trip down to beautiful High Park. It’s casual, peaceful, and all kinds of quaint – you’re going to love spending Saturdays here!
Who Lives Here
Everything here is within walking distance, so families love it because of the “small village in a big city” vibe that they get simply from walking the streets. Commuters love it because of the convenience to downtown (by car or by subway), kids love the fabulous parks, and locals love the old-world charm from the various butcher shops and bakeries that line the street.
How to Get Around
It’s all about the subway in Bloor West Village! Runnymede and Jane station, both located on Line 2, offer access to downtown or further parts of the West End. If you’re hopping in your car, all you need to do is hit the South Kingsway to make your way down to the Gardiner Express of Lakeshore Boulevard. It’s really as simple as that!
Bloor West Village offers an eclectic mix of homes. Thanks to the neighbourhood’s European roots, you’ll find older homes shoulder-to-shoulder with modern new builds. The mix here is upscale, detached, with plenty of room to play. That’s why families love it here – it’s easy to find your forever home in BWV.
