The City of Toronto's neighbourhood definitions place Bedford Park within a larger neighbourhood, called Bedford Park-Nortown. The border of this larger area extend to Bathurst Street on the west, Highway 401 to the north, Hillhurst Boulevard (just north of Eglinton Avenue) to the south, and zigzags from northeast to southwest along Yonge Street and Avenue Road. The larger area now also encompasses Ledbury Park, which has turned into quite a large construction zone with the huge migration of young professionals to the area. The classic bungalows, which dominated the area are being replaced by dumpsters and construction, which has vaulted the housing value disproportionately to the city average. Bedford Park's quiet streets, mature trees, good schools and parks, and proximity to Highway 401 and Lawrence Subway Station attract young professionals and their families to the neighbourhood. Many of the original homes still stand, with a number having undergone extensive renovations. A portion of the original homes in the neighbourhood have been torn down and replaced with larger, more modern homes.
