Riverdale – Historic Neighbourhood

A walking tour of historic Riverdale, situated on the left bank of Don River valley in the centre of Toronto includes the redeveloped complex Don Jail and Bridgepoint Health Centre. In the last 20 years it has changed from a quiet residential area into a place which deserves to be introduced to tourists. Our tour will begin from historic ‘Aqueduct’-bridge across Don River on Danforth Street (gateway to ‘Greektown’) and will lead us along steep slopes of valley with amazing view of downtown core of Toronto. We will look at some very interesting Victorian homes and visit the impressive building of the famous Don Jail, known as the most humane prison in the British Empire, as well as panoramic vistas of Don Valley and Toronto downtown from the top of Bridgepoint Hospital.
