To the south on Bayview Avenue are many local specialty food stores, boutiques, cafes and high-end restaurants adding to the ambiance of the community. Directly to the north is the Sherwood Park Ravine where residents can follow the Burke Brook and enjoy old growth trees of at least 150 years old set in one of the city’s largest remaining protected natural areas.
