Glen Park is a diverse community bringing together people from broad socio-economic backgrounds. Italian Canadian families own many of the homes around Dufferin Street, while a large Jewish orthodox community resides closer to Bathurst Street.
Glen Park also has a low-income district that is located in the centre of this neighbourhood near the Allen Expressway. This pocket of Glen Park is home to many new Canadians and contains geared-to-income rental housing.
The Glen Park Public School recently received the Canada Award of Excellence from the National Quality Institute. This award recognizes the improved standards and above average test results achieved at this school, which also boasts a strong French Immersion program.
Glen Park contains an eclectic mix of houses that come in a variety of shapes, colours and sizes. The oldest homes in this neighbourhood are the cosy looking white or pastel painted bungalows. These homes were built mostly in the late 1940's and contain pleasing decorative accents such as front bay windows and accent octagonal shaped windows. Note that while many of these bungalows are framed with aluminum siding there are also a fair number of houses framed with asbestos siding which was popular during this era for its fire resistant features.
The slightly larger brick bungalows that are also common in this neighbourhood were built mostly between 1955 and 1972. They include ranch-style, split-level, and raised bungalow designs.
Since the early 1990's a growing number of Glen Park's original housing stock has been replaced by new custom built homes that are well suited to the expansive lots found in this neighbourhood.
