One of several communities just north of Lawrence collectively named 'North Toronto'; the Teddington Park neighborhood is one of the smallest and most exclusive districts in Toronto. Over the years many important and influential Torontonians have called this neighborhood their home.
Teddington Park is conveniently located along the Yonge Street corridor; it is remarkably quiet, thanks to its natural boundaries, which include the Rosedale Golf Club and the Riverview Drive Ravine.
Tenddington Park once formed the northern boundary of the City of Toronto. In 1912, that same year, two prominent Toronto businessmen registered separate plans of subdivision: Nicholas Garland and Robert Dack. These plans led to the eventual building of homes in Teddinton Park. Teddington Park's development as a high-end residential district was inspired by the Rosedale Golf Club, which had moved from Rosedale to the Teddinton Park area in 1909.
Teddington Park's older houses on Riverview Drive were originally given descriptive names such as 'Donnybrook', 'Silverwood', and 'Treetops' in lieu of municipal addresses, which were not issued until some time after the houses were built. Some of these well-preserved homes still display their historical names, and most are in the Tudor and Gothic styles, with Edwardian and Georgian styles becoming more predominant closer to Yonge Street. Along Riverview Drive, houses have great views of the ravine and some back onto the West Don River and Rosedale Golf Club. There are newer low-rise condos and townhouses in the southwesst corner, overlooking a small ravine jsut off Avenue Road.
Teddginton Park also has an upscale seniors' residence that combines the traditional residential charm of the area with all the advantages and conveniences of an established retirement residence.
Teddington Park residents have easy access to the Yonge-Lawrence shopping district, which includes all the professioanl services, banking, pharmacies, specialty grocery food shops. For mall shopping, residents can head west to Lawrence Square or to Yorkdale Mall. Residents enjoy fine shopping at such neighborhood hot spots as the Friendly Buytcher on Yonge Street. The John Young Gallery offers high-priced English and French antiques, which would suit any discriminating buyer.
Access to excellent schools including Bedford Park, John Wanless, Blythwood, John Ross Robertson, Lawrence Park and several French private schools is a major draw for families.
Bus lines on Yonge Street and Mount Pleasant Road connect passengers to the Lawrence station on the Yonge-University-Spadian subway line. Motorist can travel directly downtown by way of either Yonge Street or Mount Peasant Road. Travelling out of the city by car, the Yonge Street on-ramp to Highway 401 is just minutes away.
Golf enthusiasts have the option of a private membership at the Rosedale Golf Club, or paying public fees at the nearby Don Valley Golf Course, off Yonge Street just north of York Mills.
Several Toronto Parks & Recreation community centres serve the North Toronto area including the Bedford Park Community Centre on Ranleigh, which offers a wide variety of programs and summer camps; the Fairlawn Neighborhood Centre, offers programs for babies, children and adults throughout the year.
