welcome to the neighbourhood!


welcome to the neighbourhood!

We are a group of people who live near the corner of Queen and Beaconsfield in Toronto. We like our neighbourhood and want to keep it beautiful and livable.

We are especially concerned about the rapid proliferation of bars in our neighbourhood.

The residents association maintains an email list- we announce news about bars and patios in the area. If you want to be informed, send us a note at info@queenbeaconsfield.com and we'll add you to the list. It'sa pretty low-volume list, with anywhere from zero to 5 or 6 messages a month.

Check out our blog!

We now have a blog. There's a bit of information there, and hopefully a bit more soon.

It's at QueenBeac.wordpress.com
