The defining feature of the Fairbank neighbourhood is its topography, which features a series of rolling hills that climb their way northward from Rogers Road to the northern tip of Fairbank at Briar Hill Avenue. Many of these hills are bisected by curvilinear one way streets that add an old world charm to the neighbourhood.
Fairbank real estate offers modest house prices and convenient access to transit and highways. Fairbank's demographics include a large number of people of Italian, Portuguese, and West Indian heritage.
Eglinton Avenue West is a multi-cultural shopping strip that has been coined "the Avenue to the world". Shoppers in this area can choose from hundreds of stores including bargain shops, fashion boutiques, jewellery stores, and West Indian and Jamaican restaurants.
Dufferin Street offers a mix of local shops as well as chain stores that attract shoppers from all over the city. Included in this mix are a number of new and used car dealerships, shopping plazas, and restaurants.
The Castlefield Design and Decor district along Castlefield Road at Caledonia is marked by distinctive street banners and features some of Toronto's top home design and decor retailers.
Fairbank residents are well served by bus routes that criss-cross this neighbourhood. The Rogers Road and Eglinton Avenue buses connect to stations on the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line while the bus lines serving Oakwood Avenue, Dufferin Street and Caledonia Road connect to stations on the Bloor-Danforth subway line.
Motorists can gain quick access to the city core via Dufferin Street, which extends all the way down to the Toronto Harbourfront. For those commuting outside the city, the Allen Expressway, off Eglinton Avenue, is approximately a five minute drive from this neighbourhood. This expressway offers quick access to Highway 401.
The Fairbank Memorial Community Centre at 2213 Dufferin Street offers a myriad of programs for children and adults. This centre also operates a non-profit seniors club which offers a variety of clinics, workshops and special events for adults 55 years of age and over. To the north of the community centre is the Fairbank Memorial Park. This park has two baseball diamonds, a children's playground, a basketball court and a swimming pool.
