The "triangle" shape neighbourhood
The Junction Triangle is a neighbourhood situated in West Toronto, Ontario, approximately in the area of Bloor St., Dupont St., Lansdowne Ave, and Dundas St. West.
The "triangle" shape of the neighbourhood is created by the three sets of railroad tracks on the north, west, and east sides.
In late years the Junction Triangle has undergone a major renovation that has seen much of its former industrial core replaced by residential lofts and townhomes.
The Galleria Shopping Centre, at the corner of Dupont and Dufferin streets, and the Crossways, at the corner of Dundas and Bloor, support suitable, indoor shopping combined with professional services. Across the trails on historic Dundas Street West is the “Junction Gardens” shopping district, which consist of a huge variety of shops and restaurants.
Local street shopping is also accessible on Dupont Street, Bloor Street, and the north part of Symington Avenue.
Residents of this neighbourhood are less than one mile from High Park, which contains countless recreational opportunities. There are also four local parks situated within this neighbourhood. Their facilities combine playgrounds, wading pools and artificial ice rinks.
