Information on Thorncliffe Park Neighbourhood
Before getting what the neighbourhood has to offer, looking back at the history of Thorncliffe Park indicates that the first residents settled during the early 1800s. The area, which was then home to various farms, and rural dwellings would become a popular stopping point for merchants and other farmers on their way to the inner city.
During the 1900s a lot of development took place in the area, with a group of Baltimore-based developers buying up the land, operating a race track until 1952. It was around this time, and close to the start of the 1960s that the land was resold to Thorncliffe Park Ltd., and would later become amalgamated with five other neighbourhoods in 1998 which now makes up the City of Toronto,
Through its extensive history, the neighbourhood has remained a popular destination for many residents across Canada and from abroad.
With a wide variety of cultural influences, amenities and entertainment are endless to choose from. Featuring colorful restaurants, bars, coffee shops, local merchants, and big-box commercial stores, there’s nearly everything anyone would want in a neighbourhood.
Adjacent to the neighbourhood is Leaside, an upper market area, which borders the southern part of Thorncliffe at Leaside Park. In the middle of the neighbourhood sits the East York Hydro Green Space, a popular spot for locals over weekends, E.T. Seton Park, and the community gardens are filled with life during the warmer months with local markets and live events.
