Davisville Village is home to about 25,000 people, living in a mix of residences from condominiums to detached and semi-detached homes. It is popular among singles, young couples, professionals and families, and truly embodies the “small-town-in-a-big-city” feel.
The neighbourhood is known for its excellent recreational facilities, outstanding shopping districts along Mount Pleasant Road and at Yonge and Eglinton, and close proximity to well regarding dining options. One of the main benefits of purchasing a home in the Davisville Village area is relatively quiet, safe streets surrounding by the bustling attributes of a big city.
The majority of the homes in the area were constructed in the 1920s and 1930s, and styles differ depending on the location. West of Mount Pleasant Road, residences are generally large two- or three-storey homes. East of Mount Pleasant Road, homes are typically smaller, with detached and semi-detached homes nestled alongside charming bungalows. Newer custom builds are becoming more popular in Davisville, keeping the neighbourhood profile fresh and current.
There is a vast choice of schooling options in Davisville, including private education offered by Greenwood College School, Sunnybrook School, and The York School.
Of the various appealing attributes of Davisville Village, the recreation scene is among its most popular. June Rowlands Park (renamed from Davisville Park in 2004) is a 2.4 hectare park conveniently located in the middle of the community, and is the social and recreational heart of the neighbourhood. Children will love the playground, splash pad and wading pool, while adults will enjoy the Davisville Tennis Club, baseball diamond, and paths.
