Leslieville began as a small village in the 1850s, which grew up around the Toronto Nurseries owned by George Leslie and sons, after whom the community is named. Leslieville is a neighbourhood which gentrified rapidly between 2000 and 2010 when it was commonly referred to as an up-and-coming neighbourhood, with new restaurants, shops and cafés catering to its new populace popping up. Several industrial buildings in the immediate area, including north along Carlaw, have been revamped into condominiums. Enjoy weekend strolls and the Leslieville Farmers’ market, shopping along historic Queen Street, the sights, sounds and smells of Toronto’s East Indian community at the India Bazaar and an abundance of local schools and parks.
