Aside from the odd bungalow with a new second-storey addition, not much has changed here since the early part of the 20th century. The neighbourhood offers street after street of residences, though Pape has a tiny pocket of retail and restaurants. Green space can be found at popular Dieppe Park, and a farmers’ market pops up at the East York Civic Centre on Thursdays. The area’s south end is only a couple of blocks from the Danforth’s larger selection of shops and restaurants, while R. H. McGregor Elementary School draws in families with school-age kids thanks to an on-site daycare and a good French immersion program.
