Humewood-Cedarvale is a wealthy family-oriented neighbourhood that sits between Oakwood Village and Forest Hill South. Bordered by St Clair Ave. W. on the south, Eglinton Ave in the north, Bathurst St. in the east and Arlington and Winette Avenues in the west, it is well served by the TTC via the Eglinton and St Clair streetcars, and Bathurst bus north-south. Undoubtedly the biggest jewel of the area is Cedarvale Park, a tree-filled 35 acres with a stunning ravine, which bisects the neighbourhood and is brimming with activities for all ages.
Delicious eateries are plentiful along St Clair, with everything from Japanese to Jamaican options as well as popular contemporary restaurants including local treasure, The Rushton. Eglinton also serves up abundant options with more Jewish influence and well-established restaurants, such as Jerusalem, draw crowds with their mix of traditional fare.
