Caribou Park has two very distinct residential pockets. The Georgian, Tudor, and English Cottage style houses closer to Avenue Road and east of Caribou Park were built in the 1930's and 1940's. The houses along Otter Crescent that back onto the ravine and the Otter Creek are generally situated on premium lots that command the highest prices in the neighbourhood.
The split-level houses and ranch style bungalows located west of Caribou Park and closer to Bathurst Street were built in the 1950's and 1960's. Some of these houses have been replaced by modern custom built homes.
Caribou Park is a centrally located neighbourhood that is well served by public transit. The Lawrence and Avenue Road buses connect passengers to stations on the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line. The Lawrence subway station is within walking distance for those seeking a bit of exercise.
Avenue Road provides motorists with a direct route downtown in approximately twenty minutes. A five minute drive north on Avenue Road will link commuters to Highway 401.
The Caribou neighbourhood park is conveniently located right in the centre of this neighbourhood off Caribou Drive. This park features a popular children's playground.
Otter Creek Park is located just east of Avenue Road off Cheritan Avenue. This fitness oriented park includes four tennis courts that are retrofitted for use as an artificial ice rink in the wintertime. Otter Creek also provides access to the Chatsworth ravine which contains a nature trail.
The ultra-modern Barbara Frum Public Library at 20 Covington Road includes a children's storyroom, French and multicultural collections, and an auditorium with a 150 person seating capacity. This library is combined with a 10,000 square foot recreation centre that contains multi-purpose rooms, a kitchen/craft room and meeting rooms.
