"Worth a look...."

Rosebank is a neighborhood in the north section of the city and is the home of the Senator Theatre. East Northern Parkway, York Road and Bellona Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood is a mixture of commercial and residential uses. Homes here are attached single-family structures and are the typical “row home” style structures found just about everywhere in the city. In addition, a significant number of detached single-family homes can be found here as well. Homes are typically well maintained and are located on lots with trees.

Govans Presbyterian Church and the associated cemetery take up approximately one third of the neighborhood. There are no schools within Rosebank, nor is there any dedicated green space. If those things are important to you then this neighborhood may not be a good fit for you. Residents of the neighborhood will find numerous restaurants and shopping options including the Zen Café’. There are numerous public bus stops located along the main roads providing easy access to mass transportation.

Like many neighborhoods in large cities, crimes against people and property can occur at any time and crime rates can vary from street to street and day to day. As always, check recent crime statistics to make an informed decision on any neighborhood you are considering living in or visiting.

Despite not having any schools or dedicated green space, I could see myself living here. I have traveled thru Rosebank on numerous occasions with work and find it to be a nice neighborhood. Take a drive thru one day and check it out. It is small but charming as well.
