Rockcliffe-Smythe is made up mostly of single-family detached homes. Smythe Park today sits on the site of the one-time gravel pit, and is joined by several other green spaces, including Black Creek Park and Gaffney Park. In fact, Rockcliffe-Smythe’s western edge consists entirely of green space, including Lambton Park and Scarlett Woods golf courses. The area also offers many recreational facilities, including the Smythe Park Recreation and Community Centre, the York Community Centre, and the Smythe Park Outdoor Pool. Best of all, there’s an amazing ravine system with a variety of multi-use trails.
Major streets like Dundas, Jane, and St. Clair provide all major amenities, like grocery stores, banks, and drug stores, as well as a mixed variety of chain and mom-and-pop shops, including restaurants, bars, and several craft breweries. The hip and ultra gentrified Junction neighbourhood is just next door, as is the quickly growing Stockyards District, where you’ll find the Stock Yards Village, an outdoor shopping mall with more than 50 brand name stores.
Being close to St. Clair makes for easy streetcar access and a direct connection to both the University and Yonge subway lines, while the Dundas car and several busses run to the Bloor–Danforth line. The northern part of Rockcliffe-Smythe will soon be within walking distance of the new Eglinton Crosstown line, and if you like to cycle, the waterfront is a quick zip down the Humber River bike trail.

Messina Bakery / 19 Scarlett Rd

Nearly everyone is greeted by staff by first names, and occasional customers are interrupted in their perusals by double-cheek kisses from women emerging from the kitchen. Messina's pantry shelves are filled with mostly imported products including olive oils, dry pastas, spices, and sauces.
