10 quirky moments in the life of a Parkdale resident
Toronto's Parkdale neighbourhood is known for its quirky charm, slow gentrification and a diverse mix of residents. Fittingly, the west side area provides plenty of intriguing content for the satirical Instagram account, appropriately called @parkdalelife. Comprised mainly of photo submissions, this feed lets you live vicariously through a mysterious Parkdale resident.
Many of the photographs featured include rather unusual lost pet signs, giving us even more proof of Toronto's obsession with out-of-the-ordinary animals.

Apparently, you can find this snazzy bike rack by Queen and Dunn.
