The Riverdale neighbourhood was one of the places we'd originally looked at some apartments when we were first moving to the city, but we haven't really checked it out since we'd arrived. So, knowing there was a large park there that descended into the greenery of the Don Valley, we decided to check it out. It was only a short (subway replacement) bus ride away after all.
The Riverdale neighbourhood seemed nice - lots of the big old houses we've come to expect from Toronto neighbourhoods, perched up on the edge of the Don Valley, looking out over the Don Valley Parkway, the ravine itself, and downtown beyond. Not a bad view.
