This small, historic neigbourhood is broken up into two parts. The older section of Alexandra park has homes that date back to the 1880s, with lovely victorian style architecture that brings a sense of nostalgia. The newer area has houses that were built in the 1960s, part of the Alexandra Park Housing Cooperative.

The neighbourhood is known for being very tight-knit, a community led by a driving force of young adults who are always finding the best ways to revatalize the Toronto neighbourhood while keeping its history. It is a great place to live if you love colourful city life - It is bordered by Queen Street West, Spadina, Dundas, and Bathurst - making it a great location for walking around.
