High ParkFull Screen
As its name suggests, the neighbourhood of High Park is defined by its proximity to the park itself, the city’s largest green space. It is a community rich with history. The area north of Bloor was formerly part of the Town of West Toronto Junction, until its annexation by the City of Toronto in 1909. The land south of Bloor was purchased by John Howard in 1808, one of the city’s first architects. Howard called his massive estate “High Park” because of its commanding views of Lake Ontario. He conveyed the property to the City of Toronto and requested that the land remain a park for all Torontonians to enjoy. His original home is now Colborne Lodge Museum.
High Park’s winding tree-lined streets feature some of Toronto’s finest residential homes. The stately Edwardian, Tudor and Victorian dwellings, with their distinctive brick exteriors, were built in the late 1890s and early 1900s and are highlighted by fine period details, elegant principal rooms and fireplaces. There are also many condo buildings, offered at both entry-level and luxury prices, in the High Park neighbourhood.
High Park is conveniently located within walking distance of Bloor West Village, one of the city’s most popular shopping districts, with its cafés, shops, restaurants, fruit & vegetable markets and flower shops. High Park’s other major shopping venue is Junction Gardens, along Dundas Street West. The recently revitalized area has become a trendy hub for artist’s galleries, antique stores, bakeries, organic grocers and chic shops.
