Community

Singles, young families, and active seniors come together in High Park to form an eclectic yet professional residential community. Situated next to its namesake and Toronto’s largest park, much of the High Park real estate is surrounded by nature, giving the community a peaceful atmosphere.

Amenities

Much of the neighbourhood around High Park real estate is walkable and well-connected to the TTC. High Park Station and Keele Station are both nearby, connecting residents to buses and the Bloor-Danforth subway line. You could happily live without a car here, but if you do drive, there is easy access to Lake Shore Boulevard, The Queensway, and the Gardiner Expressway.

Activities

With High Park just minutes away, families get to enjoy a plethora of natural beauty and recreational resources right in their own backyard. We recommend getting the family together for a bike ride through the park, a visit to the petting zoo, a picnic, or a trip to see a production of Shakespeare in the Park. You can also do some shopping along Bloor Street West, take a ride down to the waterfront for a refreshing view of the lake, or bike along the waterfront trail.

Real Estate

High Park real estate is defined by its stunning character, including homes with stained glass windows, original hardwood flooring, and unique architectural detailing. Most of the homes here are semi-detached or detached. Some have been subdivided into rental units, but many remain as single-family homes. There are also condos and apartments along Bloor Street West and low-rises dotted throughout the area.

Situated west of High Park, east of the Humber River, and north of Lake Ontario, the Swansea community is perfectly located for those who want to be close to both nature and the amenities of the city. It is also the only neighbourhood in Toronto with its own community-run Town Hall. Defined by its safety, greenery, and peaceful atmosphere, Swansea’s residents are tight-knit and community-focused. The area attracts a vibrant crowd, from singles and young families to active seniors.

Amenities

In Swansea, you’re within walking distance to most amenities, including the great shops and restaurants on Bloor Street West.  Residents have great access to The Gardiner, The Queensway, and Lake Shore Boulevard, as well as two subway stops to choose from: Jane Station and Runnymede Station.

The Swansea Town Hall hosts a variety of programs and events for children, adults, and seniors, including fitness classes, music classes, dance classes, life skills workshops, book clubs, homework club, March break programs, and more.

Located beside Swansea Public School, Rennie Park is another hub of family-friendly activity in the community. You can go ice skating on the rink or tobogganing down the hill in the winter, and in the warmer months, you can enjoy the park’s four lit tennis courts, a shuffleboard, a gazebo, picnic areas, a wading pool, and a playground.

Real Estate

The majority of Swansea real estate comprises detached and semi-detached homes. You can find the higher-end homes closer to Grenadier Pond or the Brule Gardens pocket, while condos and apartments can be found at the southern end of the neighbourhood.
