Kingsway Park is the premier neighbourhood in Toronto’s west end. This well planned community was designed for families. The houses and properties are a good size, the streets are pedestrian friendly, and the schools, shopping, churches, and recreation are all within walking distance.
Kingsway Park is known for its idyllic setting, nestled in the forest of the Humber River Valley. Kingsway Park’s streets are lined with majestic oak and maple trees that provide the perfect backdrop for the stately homes that grace this neighbourhood.
A little history about The Kingsway
Kingsway Park is situated on former Clergy Reserve lands that were deeded to the Church of England in the early 1800’s. The church leased this property to farmers until 1908 when it was acquired by Robert Home Smith, the visionary who planned The Kingsway neighbourhood.
Home Smith and Company began marketing this subdivision in 1912. However the sale of homes in Kingsway Park was stalled by the outbreak of World War I, as well as inadequate transportation routes across the Humber River Valley. It wasn’t until 1924 when the Bloor Street bridge was built that the sale of houses in Kingsway Park began.
Many of the first Kingsway Park residents were Northern Ontario mining executives and Toronto businessman who were personally acquainted with Robert Home Smith and were encouraged by him to purchase houses here. Home Smith’s motto for Kingsway Park was “a little bit of England far from England”. His lofty ideal was to establish an English style garden suburb of the highest integrity and beauty. It is Robert Home Smith’s legacy that Kingsway Park endures today as one Toronto’s finest neighbourhoods.
