When would you like to visit...
The Kensington-Chinatown neighbourhood is an eclectic community bordered by College, Queen and Bathurst streets and University Avenue. To the west is Kensington Market, a diverse and historic retail/residential community populated with small shops. That community enjoys pedestrian-only Sundays in the summer. South of Kensington is the Alexandra Park community, which is home to the Atkinson Co-op. The area is set to undergo a massive transformation to help turn it into more of a mixed-use neighbourhood. East of those communities is the Kensington-Chinatown area, which runs north-south along Spadina Avenue – a haven for Toronto’s Chinese-Canadian community and a popular spot for diners and tourists alike.
The area is home to the Art Gallery of Ontario, and has two hospitals – Toronto Western and Mount Sinai. Schools in the area include Orde Street Junior Public School and St. Patrick Catholic School. It is served on transit by the Yonge-University subway at Osgoode, St. Patrick and Queen’s Park stations, as well as streetcars and buses along College, Dundas, Queen and down Spadina and Bathurst. Energetic Kensington-Chinatown hosts a variety of Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai and Japanese restaurants that range from dim sum and pho to modern fusion. The animated Asian open-air markets and shops along Spadina Avenue offer fresh fruits and vegetables, along with herbal medicine and souvenirs. Chinese New Year celebrations draw tourists and locals to live stage shows, martial arts demonstrations and lion dances.
