North Rosedale is one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods in Canada. We enjoy our very own “Village in the City”.
Whether you are a long standing resident, a new resident or are currently considering moving here, you will agree our “Village in the City” is one of a kind. The NRRA volunteer board has partnered with our residents and businesses to protect and preserve it for over 60 years!
Rosedale Park has everything a family is looking for – tennis courts, children’s playground, splash pad, soccer field, ice-rink and running track. In 2013-2014 the NRRA sponsored a fund-raising campaign that collected over $500,000 in private donations that were used to fund the development of the playground and splash pad.
Originally the home to Ontario’s fourth government house, Chorley Park was built for our Lieutenant Governor in 1915. Given financial constraints in 1960 it was demolished and in its place Chorley Park was established. It is now a quiet 5 hectare park featuring a mature tree canopy and picnic tables. The park overlooks the Don River Valley with trails that lead down into the valley connecting with the Beltline Recreation Trail and the Don Valley Brick Works.
As development of the Chorley Park Trail progresses, the NRRA is in contact with city officials to determine the best way for our community to get involved (eg participation in a tree planting day) to ensure the trail is as beautiful as it can be. When available, details will be shared on the North Rosedale Community page on Facebook.
Each year North Rosedale Residents’ Association organizes our annual clean up day at Chorley & Rosedale Park. Join us!
