High Park Property Management
Located in the west wing of Toronto, is a neighbourhood rich in culture, diversity, and nature. A place where the streets are lined with rare oak trees, and the homes resemble the charm of the early 19th century.
High Park North, as some may call it, is an area with a diverse ecological background, ample local restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and other family fun activities. The neighbourhood is more commonly known for the park which it borders, one of Toronto’s most well-preserved natural parks right on the banks of Lake Ontario.
The neighbourhood, which gets its name from the park, accommodates residents from every type of background. The neighbors here are young working professionals, small to medium-sized families, and a scattering of retired residents.
High Park truly has some exceptional charm, and it’s why so many have now called this community their home. The neighbourhood is the picture-perfect combination of city and suburbia, right on the shore of Lake Ontario.
