The Dufferin Grove neighbourhood is situated west of downtown Toronto and is bordered on the east by Dovercourt Road and Dufferin Street on the west. It is directly south of Bloor Street West and north of College and Dundas Streets.

The area was first settled by the Denisons, a British family who built country estates dubbed with whimsical names. The family cultivated the land that was to become Dufferin Grove later on as housing developments grew at a rapid pace to keep up with Toronto's growing population.

It is a family-oriented neighbourhood, made more so by its adjacency to Dufferin Grove Park, a city-owned park that has turned into a community meeting place and project space. The park features a playground, skating rink, sports fields and a community oven among other amenities. It hosts a community vegetable and flower garden, an organic market, live performances and neighbourhood meets throughout the year. The entire park is also Wi-Fi enabled.

A YMCA and the Bloor/Gladstone Public Library provide additional amenities and meeting places.

Compared to standard Toronto houses,
Dufferin Grove homes are larger. Some of the houses date back to the period between 1890 and 1930. Houses are usually two-storey and split-level detached and semi-detached homes, displaying influences of Edwardian, Victorian and English Cottage styles.

The population of Dufferin Grove is fairly dense. The area is affordable, yet it is still an accessible neighbourhood for downtown workers and families wishing to take advantage of quality schools run by the Toronto District School Board and the Toronto Catholic District School Board. The schools include Brock Junior Public School and Dewson Junior Public School.

The Dufferin Mall located near the intersection of Bloor and Dufferin is a regional mall anchored by large national retailers including Walmart, Toys “R” Us and H & M stores.

As is the case in most of Toronto, Dufferin Grove is a culturally diverse neighbourhood. The shops on Dundas, Bloor and College Streets embody the rich diversity of the neighbourhood just as every grassroots event emphasizes residents' pride in their community.
