Welcome to Rosedale, Toronto
Welcome to Rosedale,an exclusive neighbourhood in Toronto. It is located north of the downtown of Toronto and is one of its oldest suburbs. It is also one of the wealthiest and highly priced areas in Canada. It is known as the area where the city's 'Old Money' lives, and is home to some of Canada's richest and most famous citizens. The area has many large stately old homes.
Even though Rosedale is located in the middle of Toronto, virtually no vehicular traffic can be heard due to the abundance of trees and foliage that surround the community. Rosedale is built among three ravines, preserved as parkland. Rosedale has convoluted routes through the neighbourhood due to bieng built among these ravines and other physical boundaries and is sometimes divided north and south by Park Drive Ravine. It perpetually enjoys a high profile in the Toronto Real Estate market.
