Riley Park/Little Mountain is Mount Pleasant’s older, chiller sibling. It’s an area where plenty of former West Side businesses are retreating to, with all of the foot traffic but a fraction of the west-of-Granville rent. It’s the home of tourist mecca (and legitimate gem) Queen Elizabeth Park, a longstanding constellation of treasure-filled antique shops and a burgeoning vegetarian food scene. The area’s residential blocks are punctuated with antique stores and tiny comedy venues, creating an eclectic vibe with something available to suit everyone’s taste.
