From its spot nestled between the Gardiner Expressway and King Street West, you’ll feel like you’ve been let in on a real Toronto secret. Liberty Village is easily accessible by bus but somewhat closed off from the surrounding city. If you’ve worked up an appetite visiting other Toronto attractions, a trip to Liberty Village is worth the effort.
Liberty Village is a carefully planned community focused on a balance of residential, commercial, and retail space. The area began to develop in the 1850s with the construction of the nearby railway.
This brought industry to the city along with the necessary warehouses and factories. Today those spaces have been converted into cool loft spaces, offices, and studios. Original Victorian industrial architecture still proudly stands throughout the area along with the occasional tall chimney stack.
The area includes upscale hair and nail salons, funky furniture boutiques, and trendy shopping for visitors. Exposed brick walls, craft beer, balcony patios, and games of indoor bocce ball characterize Liberty Village’s cozy culinary scene.
From Liberty Village, it’s a short trip over to the Canadian National Exhibition Grounds, which hosts events year round, and most famously The Ex. This temporary end of summer amusement park is a favourite Toronto tradition that is a riot of colour and lights with rides, petting zoos, street food, and more.
Situated within the Ex’s gates are concert venues, massive upscale nightclub spaces, and pool bars that host some of the city’s most lavish parties.
