With several acres of abundant greenspace in the neighbourhood, as well as the Don River flowing on the east side, Cabbagetown is perfect for residents who prefer the nature of the outdoors.

Homes in Cabbagetown

Known for its large collection of Victorian houses, most Cabbagetown homes were built between 1860 and 1895. Many of these properties have been restored. The Cabbagetown Preservation Association (of which members are neighbourhood residents) plays a vital role in ensuring that all Cabbagetown renovations and new developments keep the architecture and character of the historic neighbourhood intact.
