North Toronto Today
North Toronto is the northern section of the old, pre-amalgamation City of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It occupies a geographically central location within the current "megacity" boundaries. It is a relatively narrow strip, centred around Yonge Street; it extends from the CP tracks south of St. Clair Avenue north to Yonge Boulevard, with its core area between Davisville Avenue and Blythwood Road. The Town of North Toronto was incorporated in 1890, when much of the area was still farmland, and annexed by the old City of Toronto in 1912.
Today North Toronto is a relatively affluent community, and very popular with young families.
Homes in North Toronto
The neighbourhood has had a mixed-density design for some time, but this is rapidly changing to a greater density with the construction of condos in the area. The southern part of the neighbourhood is densely populated, with the entire section between Yonge Street and Mount Pleasant Road south of Davisville Avenue built up into high rise apartment buildings. More recently, condo structures have further added to this density, especially south of Merton Street (backing on to the distinguished privately owned Mount Pleasant Cemetery). Additional condo projects have begun on Mount Pleasant Road, and the existing medium-rise dwellings southeast of Yonge and Eglinton are being joined by a Minto condo project with towers of 39 and 52 stories.
Mount Pleasant Cemetery serves as a major green space for the southern end of the neighbourhood. South of the cemetery are trails in two ravines of the former Mud Creek and Yellow Creek, which lead to the Don River. On the north side of the cemetery is the Kay Gardner Beltline Park, a heavily-used path on the route of a former railway line.
Shopping in North Toronto
North Toronto is served by north-south commercial strips on Yonge Street, Mount Pleasant Road, and Bayview Avenue, and an east-west strip on Eglinton Avenue. These offer an array of shopping and dining and are largely given to small, locally-owned shops in free-standing buildings. The corner of Yonge and Eglinton features the Yonge Eglinton Centre complex, which includes a shopping mall, multiplex cinema, and both office and residential towers; and Canada Square, an office complex with a small shopping concourse and another, older multiplex. Both are connected to Eglinton subway station.
Recreation in North Toronto
Libraries can be found on Bayview Avenue, at Yonge and Lawrence, and near Yonge and Eglinton, along with a children's-focused library on Mount Pleasant. There are two community centres in North Toronto; Central Eglinton Community Centre, at Eglinton and Redpath, and North Toronto Memorial Community Centre, at Eglinton Park (Eglinton Avenue and Oriole Parkway).
