One of Toronto’s most popular and well-known neighborhoods, Saint Lawrence plays host to a wide array of shopping, dining and recreational opportunities.
The world-renowned Saint Lawrence Market offers a seemingly endless selection of food stalls, grocers and other assorted vendors-not to mention a top-tier farmers’ market. Closer to the Financial District, streets are lined with historic buildings that have been re-purposed into popular local dining establishments, tech start-ups and eclectic shops. Further east, an area formerly dominated by warehouses and industrial lands has seen its structures converted into luxury lofts, modern condos and an expanded George Brown College campus. St. James Park serves as a central common space, while nearby Berczy Park is notable for the playful design of its fountain.

The #501 Queen and #504 King streetcars provide frequent service from the neighborhood into the Financial District, as well as to popular destinations in both the East End and West End. North-south bus service is available on Parliament and Sherbourne Streets, while multiple subway stations on Line 1 Yonge-University are located on the the neighborhood’s western edge. In addition, the new Ontario Line is planned to feature a station at the intersection of Sherbourne and Queen Streets. The pair of protected bicycle lanes along Richmond and Adelaide Streets offer easy cycling access as far west as Bathurst Street.
