Thinking of heading out trick-or-treating in Toronto tonight?
If you’re not sure where to go, here’s a list of some of the best neighbourhoods in the city to collect candy with your kids (or by yourself, we’re not judging – even if others will).
The Baby Point neighbourhood is roughly the area around Jane Street and Annette Street, north west of downtown Toronto. Located near the Humber River and Magwood Park, this is a quaint family-friendly area that is sure to have some good candy options.
One of the city’s most popular neighbourhoods, Cabbagetown is all about community spirit. From decorated houses to candy, this is a one-stop Halloween neighbourhood. And the low traffic numbers makes it particularly safe.
Just west of the University of Toronto, Harbord Village is a perfect mix of residential and commercial properties. It’s also a popular trick-or-treating location in the heart of the city.
Arguably one of the city’s prettiest neighbourhoods, the mansions of Forrest Hill also get into the Halloween spirit. Might need a bigger goodie bag here.
Although it feels like a European neighbourhood, Roncesvalles gets right into Halloween mode because of the many families in the area. Definitely worth the streetcar ride down.
If you’re further north, check out Leaside around Bayview and Millwood. With many schools in the area, lots of families take part in Halloween here each year. And it’s a large area, so again, a bigger pumpkin bag might be worth bringing here.
Bloor West Village/High Park
Within walking distance to High Park, Bloor West Village is home to lots of families. This area is one of your best bets for candies in the west end.
Among the ravines and parks in Rosedale are some of the city’s most sought after residential streets. And with that, comes fully-decked out Halloween homes and lots of trick-or-treating opportunities.
