Islington-City Centre West is a large, diverse community with bustling commercial and business districts, some light industry and residential neighbourhoods, comprised mainly of detached homes on nice size lots and multi-residential buildings. In fact, more than twice the number of homeowners reside in apartments, including condominiums, than those living in detached, semi-detached, row houses and duplex homes combined.
PARKS AND REC
Barclay Terrace is just steps away from Tom Riley Park, which offers nearly 15 hectares of green space, a lit baseball diamond, multi-purpose sports field, six senior and five junior tennis courts and a children’s playground. Located at the south-east end of the park is Memorial Pool and Health Club and Central Arena.
Public transit is literally at this condo’s doorstep, with buses running north-south along Islington Avenue. Just around the corner on Dundas Street West, you’ll find east-west bus routes that connect to various subway stations along the Bloor-Danforth Line. Islington station is only a 4-minute ride away and 7 minutes if you’d prefer to walk. The neighbourhood has a transit score of 81 out of 100, just 9 ‘points’ shy of making it a rider’s paradise.
The neighbourhood has a range of public and assigned schools, providing quality education to kids close to home.
