Characterized by a series of natural ravines and a healthy old money pedigree, Rosedale is one of Toronto’s most famous and influential neighbourhoods. The traffic routes that navigate the ravines are all narrow and winding, resulting in there being little thoroughfare in the area. This, in combination with the abundance of trees and foliage found here make this neighbourhood quiet and rather idyllic despite being bordered by two of Toronto’s busiest downtown streets, Yonge to the west and Bloor to the south.

Rosedale is almost entirely residential, comprised mostly of single-family dwellings. Branksome Hall, an all-girls private school, is found here as well as Rosedale Public School. This elementary-level school is located in the heart of the neighbourhood across the street from Mooredale House, Rosedale’s community centre.

The neighbourhood is divided north-south by Park Drive Ravine.
