The 'Hood

The neighbourhood. Brockton Village is a bustling residential pocket just west of Little Portugal with a mix of restaurants and shop dotting College St. and Dundas West. The area, which was once a genuine village in the 1800s, has come a long way. Its tree-lined streets and Victorian townhomes have attracted a mix of young professionals, burgeoning families, and emerging artists who appreciate the neighbourhood's local haunts, varied history, and lively community feel.

Brockton Village's main shopping districts are on Dundas Street West and on College Street. These two shopping areas contain an eclectic mix of funky eateries, established staples, and trendy stores. It's not uncommon to find an espresso bar, bike shop, and botanical garden shop in the same block. Dufferin Mall, south of Bloor Street, includes large chain department stores, grocery, and over 100 retail outlets.

The annual Big On Bloor street festival held in July is a popular community event that celebrates local artists, musicians, and local restaurants. This festival includes an art fair, music festival, and parade with entertainment for the whole family. The McCormick Recreation Centre, at Dufferin Street and Dundas Street West, has a gymnasium, an exercise room, a games room, and an indoor pool. The playground adjacent to the centre has a wading pool and a baseball diamond.
