5 Toronto Condos for Sale Near Great Dog Parks

Living in a condo in Toronto with a dog means having to deal with complications that dog owners living in detached homes don’t have to think about. You need to make sure the building is pet friendly, that there’s a handy place to let your pooch do his/her business and, of course, you need to ensure your condo is close to a good dog park.

Exercise is important to a dog’s health, and responsible dog owners know that having access to an off-leash dog park can satisfy this need. But which condos for sale in Toronto are close to great dog parks? Don't worry - we scoped them out for you:

Kilgour Estate II (20 Burkebrook Plaza): Kilgour Estate II is perfect for dog owners looking at condos for sale in North York . This 8-storey pet friendly building has suites ranging in size from 570 to 3,048 square feet and features a variety of amenities, including a gym, pool, concierge, communal barbecues and guest suites.

Kilgour Estate II is also a short walk to the popular Sunnybrook Park . The park offers on-leash hiking trails and a 24-hour off-leash zone. Whether you’re looking for a long walk with your furry pal or a quick off-leash romp, Sunnybrook Park is a great hang out.

The Kings Lofts (800 King Street West): Located in one of the trendiest neighbourhoods in the city, these condos in King West are ideal for pet owners who want to be close to downtown. The King Lofts is a small 5-storey building with just 76 units, but don’t let its small size fool you. The building is packed with great amenities, including fitness facilities, a party room, barbecues, meeting rooms and a sauna.

The Kings Lofts is ideally located on the King streetcar line, is close to restaurants and shopping, but mostly importantly, it's just down the street from South Stanley Park. The park has an off-leash area, but be careful of restrictions during warmer weather – make sure to check the posted signage before unleashing your four-legged friend.

The Candy Factory Lofts (993 Queen Street West): A couple blocks north, the Candy Factory Lofts is one of the most sought after condos in Queen West by pet owners. A true hard loft, this building was converted from an actual candy factory dating back to the 1930s. Featuring high ceilings, open concept layouts, and post and beam construction, this loft building has tastefully married historic features with modern amenities.

One of the best amenities for dog owners is the proximity of this building to Trinity-Bellwoods Park. A haven for dog owners, this massive park includes a sunken off-leash area, known as “The Dog Bowl”, that allows easy supervision of your fur kids. Be careful though: there are specific off-leash hours, so ensure you’re in compliance with the local bylaws before unleashing.

The Abbey Lofts (384 Sunnyside Avenue): The Abbey Lofts are another hard loft, converted from a 19th century church into lofts in 2008. Units range in size from 961 to 2,889 square feet and feature exposed limestone and stained glass windows. This building itself has only 24 units and presents a great opportunity for future pet owners to join a small community.

The Abbey Lofts are also extremely close to the city’s largest park: High Park . This spacious park offers opportunities for both off- and on-leash exploring. Leave your retractable leash at home and explore the many off-leash hiking trails, or find some more rambunctious fun at “Dog Hill”.

Finally, for those who truly crave the downtown vibe, The Riviera is for you. This downtown Toronto condo is located on the Waterfront at 228 & 230 Queens Quay West, and has 517 units ranging in size from 494 square foot suites to 1,590 square foot multi-bedroom units.

Just a 1-minute walk from The Riviera is an attraction that brings dog owners from far and wide: The PawsWay . This complex is a haven for dog owners and features Canada’s first pet friendly indoor eatery. If you’ve always wanted to dine alongside your pet, The PawsWay is for you! The real draw, however, is the 3,700 square foot indoor off-leash dog park. With our sometimes harsh Toronto winters, this indoor park can be a lifesaver for you and your fur-covered friend.
