Pelmo Park-Humberlea is a neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located north-west of the central core, in the former suburb of North York. Like its name implies, it is composed of two geographic areas, the first being the Pelmo Park area which is bordered by the 401 to the north, Woodward Avenue to the south, Jane Street to the east and the Canadian Pacific Railway to the west.[1]

The second area, Humberlea, is bordered by Sheppard Avenue west to the north, Oak Street to the south, the Canadian Pacific Railway to the east and the Humber River to the west.[1]

Many of the neighbourhoods in this quadrant of the city can aptly be described as family neighbourhoods with access to parks, green space and a slower pace than found closer to downtown.

There is a large Italian population living in this north end neighbourhood.

Public transportation[edit]

Pelmo Park-Humberlea is served by the Toronto Transit Commission.

PUBLIC TRANSIT ACCESSIBILITY FOR THE DISABLED: As of June 2007,[2] the 35 Jane, 96 Wilson, 165 Weston RD North & the 84 Sheppard West are accessible.
