Although there are many neighbourhoods in Toronto’s west end, Kingsway Park is the cream of the crop. From the large homes and lots to the pedestrian friendly streets, it is easy to see that this community was built for family living.
Located alongside the Humber River Valley, living in Kingsway Park will put your mind at ease. Add this to the tree lined street, and everything in the neighbourhood comes together in perfect form.
The current Kingsway Park neighbourhood is located on the Clergy Reserve lands owned by the Church of England in the 1800’s.
In 1908, the land was purchased by Robert Home Smith who began to plan the finer details of Kingsway Park.
Although Smith had ideas of selling homes in the early 1900’s, World War I put a damper on these plans. Finally, in 1924 people began to purchase homes in the neighbourhood.
One of the most unique features of Kingsway Park is the age of the homes in the neighbourhood. The oldest homes date back to the second half of the 1800’s, ranging all the way through the late 1950’s.
The oldest homes in the area were built in Victorian and Edwardian style, and are located along Government Road.
