Welcome to Mount Dennis
Mount Dennis is poised for growth with the soon to be opened Eglinton Crosstown subway which is sure to help revitalize this historic neighbourhood. The recently opened York Recreation Centre is a fully accessible 67,000-sq.-ft facility. Located beside the west bank of the Black Creek, this community recreation centre features a green roof and other green standard sustainable features. The centre was designed with extensive input from the community. It features numerous amenities including a swimming pool, gymnasium, fitness area and community meeting rooms.. York Recreation Centre is located at 115 Black Creek Drive, on the southeast corner of Eglinton Ave. West and Black Creek Drive.
The defining feature of the Mount Dennis neighbourhood is its topography, which features a series of rolling hills that climb their way northward from Rogers Road to Briar Hill Avenue. Many of these hills are bisected by curvilinear one way streets that add an old world charm to the neighbourhood. Mount Dennis is one of Toronto's most culturally diverse neighbourhoods.
