Fall in love with the wonders
of the near East.
Close to everything you love about downtown. Toronto’s east end is a vibrant part of the city made up of lively neighbourhoods, each with their own distinctive personalities and hidden gems waiting to be discovered. Here you’ll find an eclectic array of restaurants, shops and cafés as well as lush green spaces, natural oasis and incredible beaches.
READY. SET. EXPLORE.
Evergreen Brick Works
A showcase of sustainability. The Brick Works was built to demonstrate how sustainable practices can help cities flourish. Here, you’ll find fun activities for the whole family – play in the children’s garden, hike up to the lookout, skate on the rink in winter. Their local Farmers’ Market and Artisan Market are also definitely worth a visit. Be sure to check their event calendar to see what’s on schedule!
The free Evergreen Brick Works shuttle bus departs every 30–45 minutes from the parkette on Erindale Ave, east of Broadview Ave just north of Broadview subway station.
Want to recharge with nature but can’t get out of the city? The Leslie Spit (aka Tommy Thompson Park) lets you step right into the wilderness – it’s home to an incredible variety of wildlife, including over 300 bird species. It’s also a car-free area so you can enjoy a carefree stroll. Try to make it out to the lighthouse at Vicki Keith Point for a captivating view of the city skyline.
Ready to have your breath taken away? Pop over to Riverdale Park for some of the most stunning views of downtown Toronto. Preferably at sunset. This 104-acre park offers plenty of green space – and some of the best tobogganing in the city come winter. For some summer fun, grab your friends and family, pack a picnic dinner and head over to enjoy ‘Movies in the Park’.
Chester Hill Lookout
One of Toronto’s best kept secrets is just around the corner. Sitting at the end of Chester Hill Road, you’ll find a charming observation deck with incredible views that can rekindle the romance or provide the perfect picture for your feed. Make sure you snap a shot of the giant astrology mural!
Sustainable living is something farmers have embraced for centuries. Located in Cabbagetown, Riverdale Farm is a working farm with goats, horses and chickens as well as flower, vegetable and herb gardens. Drop by on Tuesdays in the summer and check out the Cabbagetown Farmers’ Market.
St. Lawrence Market
Fresh ingredients make for an unforgettable meal. For over 200 years, the St. Lawrence Market has been the go-to destination for Torontonians who are passionate about great food. If you’ve got time, stop by the Carousel Bakery for one of their legendary peameal bacon sandwiches, you won’t regret it.
Looking for a creative way to spend an afternoon or evening? The Distillery District offers one-of-a-kind boutique shops, captivating art galleries, thought-provoking theatre shows and a deliciously diverse collection of dining options. It’s also home to The Toronto Christmas Market and Light Festival.
Your new summer hangout – be sure to pack a beach towel and sunscreen. Woodbine’s Blue Flag rating means it’s great for a refreshing swim, but you can also take in some beach volleyball, rent a paddleboard or take a leisurely stroll on the boardwalk. If you’re looking for a more family-friendly vibe, Leuty Beach is just a short walk east.
A sweet escape from the city is waiting for you. Sugar Beach has something for everyone. Grab a Muskoka chair or sit on one of the big rocks and watch the boats sail by. It also has a plaza with a packed schedule of exciting events. The kids will love the maple leaf shaped water fountain with interactive jets!
Sunny day got you feeling adventurous? Head on down to Cherry Beach – it’s the destination for windsurfing, paddleboarding and, on really windy days, kiteboarding. It’s also a great spot to get a suntan or to let your dog run free in the city’s best off-leash dog park.

- According to Toronto Atmospheric Fund
- Unlike most townhomes, Field House uses all electric building systems and no natural gas is burned on-site for space or water heating. In 2018 and 2019, 94% of the power from Ontario’s electric grid came from non-fossil fuel sources, such as hydroelectric, nuclear, wind and solar (per the IESO). At Field House, a portion of the electricity used by the homes is provided by the on-site solar panels, further reducing the amount of power drawn from Ontario’s grid.
- Based on energy modeling analysis performed by WSP. Actual energy usage and costs will vary according to annual temperature variations, as well as occupant use. These values are estimates to demonstrate the relative performance improvements seen by Field House towns as compared to standard townhomes and Daniels does not warrant or guarantee these numbers as exact values.
