Known as “Toronto’s Village of Murals”, The Village of Islington is located in the heart of Etobicoke. The Village features 25 mural “masterpieces”, enhancing the walls of over 15,000 square feet that span five blocks of the historic shopping district on Dundas West. Most of the murals have been painted by the talented, John Kuna, the murals depict a cohesive history of the neighbourhood; a labour of love this project started over nine years ago and is ever expanding.
Boutique style shopping, quaint dining spots, local services and an abundance of greenspace are just a few of the Village’s amenities. Conveniently located near the TTC and Go Transit as well as major highways and minutes to the airport, The Village of Islington is an ideal Downtown alternative. The Mimico Creek and the Islington Golf Club wind their way through the centre of this picturesque neighbourhood.
Today Dundas W. between Montgomery Road and Kipling Avenue is the location of the Village of Islington Business Improvement Area (BIA). Visit this link to see shops, services and amenities in this colourful neighbourhood.
